I made the full-circle top layer from a substantial weight bright yellow satin, and appliqued the word "LOVE" in zebra print corduroy. The slightly longer white petticoat-style underskirt peeks out from underneath the top skirt. It has a thick ruffle of tulle with a fishing wire reinforced edge, creating a beautiful frothy hem. At the top, the skirt has a wide waistband of uncovered white elastic with a round black faux "buckle" accent. All raw edges on the inside are finished with zig-zag stitch, to prevent unravelling.
This is my own original pattern and design.
The skirt is about girls' size 10, (my model in the photo normally wears a size 6-8, and it was a bit loose and long on her). The length of the skirt without the waistband is 11". The waist is about 23.75" un-stretched. The waistband is about 1/5" wide.
