Versatile party pouf a la pouf skirt

Wauwatosa, Wisco...






Well I started to make the “quick party skirt” but I made it and it was not turning out right due to I use hard to work with fabric. So I took it apart and started over. I attached 2 layers of fabric with a scalloped edge..well I used the largest scallop on my machine (did not seem big enough). Instead of interfacing on the waistband I used leopard print fabric. zi made it high waisted and added a sewn in sash that can be worn many different ways. there is an (sorta) invisible zipper with a top hook. I also added an inseam pocket. I am in the learning process. I love this skirt though. I can not really twirl otherwise my bum would show ( I don not want that)!!! I used pink lace to seam bind. The rainbow shirt in the photo I did not make, but it is an inspiration to come.

Material Notes

silky kind of fabric from walmart for $1.50/yd, thrifted leopard fabric, pale pink lace seam binding, invisible zipper, hook/clasp, stich witchery heat’n bond strips




Garment Type


Party and bows!

I’ve made 4 diff party skirts in the last couple weeks and they all turned out totally different. now I’m so making one tonight using your idea! it’s definetely my favorite thing to make, espically now that summer is right around the corner. :)
