Balloon skirt

Puff-ball type skirt based on a NIKITA one I bought a while ago. I worked out a basic pattern by measuring the original, and I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

I attempted to upload this before, but for some reason it didn’t work properly.

Material Notes

Mystery remnant. I txcitedly grabbed this from a bargain bin thinking it was a fine denim/linen. When I started working with it I discovered it had stretch, this made things a bit tricky but it is now very comfy to wear.

    I love how bubble skirts have come back into fashion, shame the style won’t suit me any more but yours looks great! I love the pocket too :)

    My granddaughter is very fond (to say the least) of bubble skirts. This will suit her just fine. (I have a tad too much “Bubble” to wear this.;) Thanks for sharing your directions. Nehmah

    Very cute – and I don’t usually like bubbley skirts! Great job on recreating a skirt you love, as wel!
