I made this skirt a couple of weeks ago as Mademoiselle L apparently had nothing to wear to a party she was invited to.
The pattern is home-made - three gathered tiers and a simple elasticated waist. But it does twirl - a necessity for 'party skirts'.
I didn't manage to get any photos of her dolled up for the party (that's what happens when you are still hemming 5 minutes before she is due to be there!) but I did get some the next time she wore it.
Party skirts are also, apparently, good for hiking!!
