Full Layered Skirt



I made this dress http://2.bp.blogspot.com/__g8LzjkIdDk/SkPaQkUG57I/AAAAAAAACwg/DHVlisGFXKU/s1600-h/front2.jpg last summer from cotton voile from gorgeousfabrics.com. I had some fabric left and thought it would work for a full skirt in color as the one I had planned for spring: see here http://theprincessseam.blogspot.com/2010/02/my-spring-plan.html.
The skirt has 2 layers and lining. The bottom layer is made using the stripe in the fabric vertically and the top layer using it horizontally. Both layers were treated as one and pleated at the waist. The pleating only reduces the width, it is not equal to the waist measurement (the waist is later gathered with elastic). Next, I lined the skirt, attached the waistband (made from two layers of fabric), and inserted elastic in it.

I like the use of the stripes in both directions, very clever.
