May I present to you my latest design. A 4-gore skirt with a ruffle. But this ruffle isn't your average ruffle. :-) The middle panel, of both the front and back, is higher by 4" then the panels on the side. Giving this skirt a one-of-a-kind look.
For the skirt pattern, I just used a basic vintage skirt pattern and adjusted as needed - which was greatly. Did some math to add the ruffle and then you are finished!
