I wanted the fabric inserts for my skirt to be more like godets, with extra fullness, something like this:
The best tutorial I found for the basic jean skirt technique was this -
I had some fabric that was like a soft burlap, which I dyed a fuschia/red colour. It's somewhat sheer fabric, so I added two layers. And here's the skirt with the godets in place.
I just needed to hem the skirt at that point, and of course, I'll be adding some embellishments. :-D These fabric flowers will go along the V shapes. As a side note, because the godets are cut on the bias, after inserting them, I left the fabric extra long and hung the garment overnight. This gives the fabric time to relax, so I can get a more even hem.
And here's the finished skirt, which I plan to wear with my gorgeous cowgirl boots!
Boots (with pointy toes, for kicking things in corners)
I'm wearing my long skirt as I speak, and I love it!
