The skirt took up a part of the fabric, I was right about that. I only have a small 30cm strip leftover that will probably end up in the trash. It also took me 5 evenings plus 1 day. I even had to re-thread my serger about 5 times because it seems not very keen on ruffling. So much for a short rewarding project... Well, now I'm done and I quite like the result. Although in the end I was this close to just throw it out of the window!
It's a great basic skirt that can be worn over a crinoline or just as is. It gives a nice volume. If it wasn't so d*nm annoying to sew, I would make more in other colours. But not right now... Maybe when I'm bored. A lot! ;)
