This lovely fabric started out as a dress more years ago than I care to recall. I love the fabric SO much but the colors just don't flatter my skin tone. Thus, the dress was relegated to the work in progress box, with the intention of making it into a skirt.
Initially, I wanted to make the English Garden skirt from the Twinkle Sews book (see my review here
), but the pattern proved too challenging. I still wanted to add godets to the skirt so I used the excellent godet instructions from the book High Fashion Sewing Secrets
by Claire B Shaeffer.
For the waistband, I cut a piece of elastic the circumference that I wanted the finished waistband to have. I folded the top edge to the inside, inserted the elastic and used a triple zig zag stitch to stitch it all in place.
