Love it! Great job on a cute skirt, and good on you for making sure you staystitched. It makes a huge difference, and it paid off.

you can wear a crinoline, and I actually made one (see my other pattern reviews) but I do not have it on in the photo. The taffeta has enough body that it has plenty of fullness without it. However, the crinoline adds "pouf" power and you can see it peeking out at the bottom, which is cute :)

Darling skirt, and it does look very much like a hostess skirt! They looked good then, and yours looks good now. Do you wear a crinoline? It looks like it stands out more than I'd expect otherwise.

Note: I have no clue what that pic is in the "pattern photo" section...it just appeared and is not mine.

Great skirt! Good luck with the fashion designing.

I used 2 pattern pieces for the skirt (each were 1/4 circle). 1 front and 1 back - both cut 2 because of the chevron in the front but you can cut the front on the fold based on the design. I'll take a better photo of the seams and post :)

Cute! I would like to know exactly how many gores you used to make this skirt. At first I thought you had simply cut out a big circle from 60" fabric since I can't really see the seams in the photo. Good job!
