What originally began as a simple A-Line skirt in my mind, turned into layers of gathers and tulle by the time I even started cutting!
Here’s the story:
To begin with, I actually made this skirt quite a while ago and it was my first attempt at gathers…I’ve since become pretty efficient at it!
There wasn’t supposed to be a lining on the inside, but once I finished it, I felt like the skirt looked a little flat and limp, so I took the whole thing apart and added some to it.
But it still looked lifeless! Hmm…what to do…Then I remembered that I had some tulle lying around, so I decided to add two gathered layers of tulle to the bottom of the lining. So much work!
At first, I didn’t quite like the skirt – maybe that’s because of how much effort went into it that I was just tired of looking at it (ha!) so I left it aside for a few days. When I went back to it, suddenly it looked way better than I before! #phew
