That "mistake" of adding the brown looks like it was intentional and really makes it so unique.

Your skirt looks great, you convinced me to make my own! And thank you for a very informative review - I too got scared of the volume halfway through and your note about it turning out OK really made me feel better. I also took your suggestion and am making mine in a cotton gauze.

Now that was a great save to think of the embroidery on the panels! Very cute skirt!

The embroidery was a stroke of genius! Lovely skirt looks great on you. I'm really tempted...

Hi. I made this pattern recently, and I understand what you mean about the volume. In fact, I had the same thoughts: this would be a great square-dancing costume! I made mine in a solid dark blue cotton; and since I am very short, I left off the very last tier. I think it works for an every-day, at-home type of skirt, rather than a fashion statement. At least mine does. Like you, I think if a drapier fabric like gauze were used, it might hang better........less volume. Yours looks nice on you. It's youthful looking without being teen-aged.
