This is the pattern for the Favourite Frills Skirt, as designed by glamourie for our Sophisticated Skirt contest.
Since glamourie gave us the option to go for either of the embellishments she included in her sketch, we decided to go for the twirls at the side rather than the frill at the bottom - they make the skirt so special while still keeping the proportions just right. The bow, which could also be worn as a plain belt, is optional. You can use it to easily switch from minimalistic and down-to-earth to intricate and playful
If you decide to give this skirt a go you should look for light and floaty fabrics, both for the opaque base and the transparent upper layer. And, as always, don't forget we'd love to see your finished piece, so please do post pictures!
