Today's pattern is a fun skirt, at least I think so! The top portion of the skirt is just a tube and the lower portion of the skirt has all the interest. It was a makeup free day, so no face!
The Faux Ruffled Tiers Skirt
Once you have made the rectangular tube for the top portion of your skirt, cut strips that are at least twice your hip measurement by 2" wide. You can see in the above pictures that I did not finish the seams. Be sure to use a fabric that does not fray unless that is the look you want. If you want 5 rows as I have, you will need approximately 8 strips. The last 3 tiers will require more than one strip.
For the second row, you will alternate the open section with the sewn section so that the open sections on the second strip are not in line with the open sections of the first strip. For the second row, you will have 2 1/2" of the strip in the open section, which is just below the sewn section of the first row, and 2 1/2" that will be sewn as you did in the previous row.
For the third row, you will alternate as you did for the second row. The open section will measure 3 1/2" and the the sewn sections will measure 2 1/2". The reason for this is that the open section just above only measures 2 1/2".
For the fourth row, the open section will measure 3 1/2" and the sewn section will measure 3 1/2".
For the fifth row, the open section will measure 4 1/2" and the sewn section will measure 3 1/2".
If you would like more rows, keep going in this manner until you have reached the length that you want.
