I saw a skirt like this online recently and decided to try making one for myself. I didn’t have a pattern for this and instead played around with different ideas as I went along. I started with a big rectangle of cotton as a sort of lining. Next I made scalloped edged strips of fabric in black and white cotton which I evenly spaced and sewed down on the original rectangle. I finished by adding front and back darts, adding a waistband, and sewing in the zipper. It was a fun process and I’m very happy with how it turned out. Anyone have a cocktail party I can attend?
