Added Jul 4, 2010

Tilton, New Hamp...






The top layer of the skirt has 20 panels in gauze fabric, the seams are embroidered in 2 shades of pink, and the hem is sewn with a cluny lace.
The 2nd innner layer is a circle skirt, same length as the outer skirt, is made of knit fabric ( since gauze is very sheer) and has a rolled hem.
The third inner layer (knee length)an underskirt, is again made of gauze fabric and has a rolled hem.
The skirt has a fitted waist with invisible zipper. I drafted the pattern for this skirt myself.
The top is made of knit fabric.The sleeves have a rolled hem. I used New Look 6470 for the top.

Material Notes

Gauze, Jet Set Knit, Cluny Lace,Invisible zipper, and all purpose thread.

      Thanks! After cutting the first 3 panels, i felt that i must have been hit by lightening when i had decided to make a panelled skirt with crinkled gauze fabric. The panels were slightly uneven on crinkles when cut in layers so i cut all the 20 panels individually; time consuming but worth it.
