Cup day skirt

The US presidential race wasn’t the only race happening on Tuesday – there was also the Melbourne Cup of course!  And for me the race was to get this skirt made for Clare before Stella woke from her midday sleep.

I used the last of the scraps I had from the top and dress I made a couple of weeks ago to eke out a matching skirt for Clare.

I made up the pattern.  The skirt is gathered onto the elasticised waistband – which works particularly well if the skirt is fuller than this one, as it reduces bulk a bit around the waist while still providing maximum twirlability.  I did take some photos during the construction of this skirt – would anyone like a tutorial?
