After trying on two separate occasions to understand the instructions before attempting to make this skirt pattern, I decided to check to see if anyone else had been more successful understanding the instructions than I have been. After reading this review, I now know the problem is with the instructions and not me. I, too, am confused by the labels “upper tier”, “lower tier”, and “ruffle”. I sometimes have a problem understanding the instructions for independent patterns but never before have I had a problem with the instructions from any of the major pattern companies. My intention was to just improvise and do the best I could to create a similar skirt. However, the one thing missing from the instructions is the measurement for the width of each tier and ruffle. Although I can ordinarily do the math myself, in this case, confusion over the number of strips in the lower tier resulted in a calculation for the lower tier more than twice as wide as the upper tier.

This is an adorable dress. I looked at the picture of the pattern envelope and could tell this was way over my head mathematically - but it is adorable for those that can sew it. Great job!!!
