This skirt from Oobi with multiple fabric layers was my inspiration for the Ottobre skirt I made. The pattern was from 01/2007, number 15, which goes by the very original title of "skirt with flounces".
I used 3 different pink fabrics, and added ric rac trim at the bottom of each flounce just like the skirt above.
This is the back view. The front is very plain.
I omitted the pockets that were on the front panel because I didn't think they were necessary and thought this skirt was busy enough without them. I like the plain front: it is a nice contrast to the back where all the action is.
It was fortunate Miss K was not older because when we tried the skirt on her - with all those flounces and a cloth nappy - it was one of those "does my bum look big in this?" moments... Nevertheless, Miss K seemed to like the flounces and danced around like a little princess!
