I had the idea of sewing this skirt since a long time. But it took a little while to figure out how to sew it so it will look like a 60’s skirt. Pleating the tulle gives the skirt volume.
I sewed a top, a cardigan and a bag to complete the outfit. The hat will come later. I have an idea of how the hat could be but I don’t have the material to sew it yet.
- lining: Black fabric 7 ½” x 4” ( 19cm x 10cm)

- Sew the 3 layers to the lining fabric face up at ¾” from the top. Gather the tulle fabrics from time to time
