Rock and roll petticoat made for my niece. She was trying it on over her denim shorts in these two photos. The stretch fabric was a bit of a mistake at first. It is really pretty, but because of the stretch and because the top layer is a circle, the petticoat sagged on two sides with the weight of the next two layers (which are long rectangular strips). I fixed this by sewing in a taffeta lining cut to the same size and shape as the original circle layer.
