Flouncy floral skirt from old fave fabric
Like these pretties...
I had enough fabric for more than just a basic short skirt, so I figured I'd might as well do a couple layers! I used a plain navy for lining on sort of the top half--the bottom flounce is just that, a flounce, and doesn't go all the way up to the waistband. That way I definitely had enough fabric to do the two flounces and keep it long enough. No pattern needed--just rectangles, gathered.
I see skirts kind of like this, maybe without the flounces, at Marshall's and stuff all the time, in the teenager-ey section, for like $16.99 but they are soo SHORT! Yikers. Dunno how people pull them off. I like that mine doesn't make me worried about flashing anyone. With the fullness that could be even more of a concern! Ya know, it actually looks kinda short in these pictures, but it doesn't feel short on. I guess I have long... thighs?
Anyways. Is is spring yet? Does Portland know it?? Can't wait to break out the florals!!
