I struggled with this pattern a bit the first time, primarily because of all the different layers and trying to follow the directions. There is no problem with the directions, it is just one of those patterns that you have to make at least once to fully grasp. Eleanor loved this skirt so much and really wanted another one. This is a great skirt because it takes a yard or less each of 4 different fabrics. The only problem I have found is finding 4 different fabrics that match and are a small enough for each print to be seen. I searched at JoAnn before Christmas and found this line of 3 and added the polka dot to give me the fourth.
I think this fabric will get us through different seasons because of the colors, and I also did go a size bigger because Eleanor loves longer skirts. I also used two of the fabrics to applique a t-shirt to match and let her pick the design. Here is the finished project
not sure what kind of pose this is
