Thanks to Gertie’s excellent dirndl skirt tutorial, I whipped this up in 45 minutes, and still had time to customize the eBay Calvin Klein shoes I wanted to wear with it! What I love is that it’s full enough that I don’t feel like I need a crinoline under it. Of course, that means it makes my derriere look even bigger than it is…. but I don’t care. How can you be unhappy with a skirt that has bubble print fabric, and isn’t *tight* on you anywhere? For more pics, go to my blog.

Thanks for the great tutorial, Gertie! I’ll be making more of these for sure!
