Montebello, New ...
I needed to make a bridesmaid dress for a wedding, and I was having trouble getting inspired until I saw the Sean skirt. I mated the two patterns together by matching at the natural waist, and then I extended the line of the Sean skirt so that it was the length of the dress pattern (I found the skirt way too short as written.) After that, I cut an extra layer of tiers – using the middle tier pattern cut to about 1" bigger on all sides, and pleated it with a center pleat until the six pleats were the width I needed them to be to tile the skirt. Then I pinned, pinned, pinned, pinned pinned, and VOILA!
