Cynthia Rowley Tulip skirt

Davis, Californi...






This skirt was made from a Simplicity Cynthia Rowley pattern. I used a stretch polyester woven fabric that I scored for $1/yd. I love the fun details like the curvy waistband, bias bound edges, the pocket, and the flowy gathers. It is one of my favorite projects. It was so much fun to sew and fits me well.

Any comments are welcome!

Thanks! :)

    I love this! Was it hard gathering the skirt at the waist?

      The gathering was a little difficult because the fabric is med. weight. It was hard to distribute the gathers evenly. I think that was my main problem. That and the excess bulk it created. I had to do a lot of trimming!

      Thanks for your comment!
