and then revamped it to make the Purple Bird Skirt.
I used 1/4 yard of black cotton (2.99/yard, cut into five gathered strips sewn together and embellished with three strips of tulle. Total cost was $1.25. For the pattern, I made one up, using the market skirt skirt tutorial as a rough base. Next time, I will simplify the skirt to only two pieces and use many more rows of tulle.
I also want to try Dana's newset version of this skirt, the Turkey Dressing Ruffled Skirt -this nylon chiffon instead of tulle for a softer look. She sells the full pattern (23 page pdf file) with photo instruction for $6 in her etsy shop HERE. And she claims to have instructions to make it for adult too. I can't wait to make this in a plethora of bright colors for summer. Scarlett is going to be the fluffiest girl around!
