Finished, she said? It's not hemmed yet. But I serged around the edges and wore it to town anyway :-)
I wanted a really ruffly skirt this time. Phooey on discretion, I want ruffles. So I used five gores of skirt 4B, the 6" width (which I don't think is on the site yet but I'll put it up soon, I'm redoing the whole thing!)
This was really, really the end on some of those fabrics. For instance, here's how one of the blue gore pieces went together... in slivers!
Five gores of skirt 4B produced this. Very much what I had in mind! Very ruffly! But too short for me, only 24" long.
It would be great for a little girl. For a while I put it away in disgust, pondering whether I should finish it and list it on ebay for some lucky little girl, or try to pick out the whole thing.
Secret weapon! Mikey to the rescue. I paid Mike $5 to pick out all those gores for me. I only had him pick the actual seams, then used the rotary cutter to trim the zigzagging off the edges.
Then I made six more gore sections from Skirt 3, which is a gentler curve, attached those above the others, and sewed the whole thing together again.
I didn't have enough of some of the fabrics, so I used something just close. It's not too obvious, is it?
And there we are, all done. I like it!
