In my defense, I do not think I was looking at the size of the elephants LOL!
Fortunately, I also bought a stone blue and I have scraps from the Catalina dress Macaw green fabric.
So, I cut them into straps. And I sat on the floor to think.
The Alice skirt is so easy that you do not need patterns to make it. However, I have add an instruction sheet with the measurement of each rectangle.
2. Matching thread
4. Elastic Thread
7. Measuring tape or ruler
Light and medium weight fabrics such as cotton and linen.
I recommend using the patterns pieces to know the amount of fabric you will use.
For a size 10 (40 inches hips measurement) I used 3/4 of a yard of the main fabric and 1/2 yard of the blue hemline and panels and 1/2 yard of the green waistband and panels.
That is why I cut the fabric into panels. I played with them and put them together. I am sure you can do this with almost any skirt project ;)That is exactly what I love the most about this project: its versatility. I am thinking of so many different ways to put skirts, even dresses together!
And that is how Alice skirt was born.

When I bought the fabric online, I had in mind this beautiful pair of shorts with a shirring waistband.
