Los Angeles, Cal...
This is my first attempt at a Marie skirt. I used an old sheet that I stiffened with some fairly heavy interfacing so that it would better take the tulip shape. It may have been a bit too stiff around the butt so I ended up stitching down the pleats a little to take out some of the poof! Wore it to work today for causal Friday and got some nice comments!
