What materials did you use? Printed cotton from Snoozer Loser (I won it in a Burdastyle.com giveaway!) and cotton voile for the gathered skirt.

What are you most proud of? The fit of the bodice, and the way the print really shines.

Well done! Very cute. Did you need to make many adjustments to the pattern?

I made a few adjustments: raised the neckline, adjusted for a swayback, and let out the front princess seams slightly because I'm not as skinny through the middle as I used to be.

Hi, I absolutely love the pairing of fabric and that skirt! I'm new to craftsy and wanted to take this as my first course, but wasn't sure about the skirt for me. You've found the perfect solution! Would you mind Shari g how you made the skirt?

Sure! It's basically a gathered rectangle. I used a yard of 60-inch wide fabric and sewed it together at the selvedge edge. Then gather all along the top edge and stitch to the bodice. Super easy!
