Born from scrap textiles and a need to twirl, the Dancers Delight has evolved from my first demeure pinwheel design to take on the double ruffle and the demands of all my dancer friends. Following in the footsteps of its forebearers, this dynamic skirt is made primarily from forgotten fabrics scrounged from thrift stores and given a new life of spinning, shimmying and shaking.

Now tweaked and twirled with every edge serged, this Dancer's Delight is One-of-a-Kind, eight-petals amounting to 1 1/3 circles, trimmed with two separate ruffles, each roll-hemmed and gathered separately to create the look of multiple skirts. The adjustable elastic waist – designed with a unique opening on the inside, allowing the waistband to lay flat and remaining undetectable - uses 1 ½ wide non-roll elastic. The over ruffle is 6 1/4 inches wide and 15 yards long followed by the under ruffle at 3 1/2 inches wide and 17 yards long!

This skirt makes salvage look sexy. All materials are upcycled, with the exception of the crepe Cyrilian panels which were scrounged from the end of a bolt of a discontinued line. (We've got to keep Mama Earth green!) It has some sassiness too, with four semi-sheer chocolate panels. Total finished length of this skirt is 39''. The model shown above is 5'7'', but please measure yourself to be sure! The waist band will comfortably allow for up to a 45'' hip, though it can easily be made smaller!

Named for "Cerridwen," the Scottish Moon Goddess, Great Mother and Nature, this design has the pride of being born, breed, sewn, serged, and sophisticated in my in-home studio situated in Charm City, and carries a warm Baltimore "Thanks Hon!" to all who peruse this skirt's yardage.
