Swishy skirt photo update

This little swishy skirt was one of the very last things I made before leaving Australia. I gave it to Miss Six last week for her birthday.
You wouldn’t believe just how many panels I had to stitch together in order to construct this skirt. The white linen was upcycled from a pair of too-tight linen pants. The blue linen and Liberty of London were merely scraps.

It is was the easiest skirt to make, really just several gathered rectangles and a folded, elastic waistband. I usually try to calculate at least 2x waist width (or skirt panel width) for the skirt (and ruffles). I find this gives a good amount of volume swish.
