I started setting up an Etsy shop recently (hence the toiling and troubling). One of the things I've considered selling is bubble skirts. Since I don't have a reliable way to serge fabric edges, making a skirt where all the edges are enclosed seems quite appealing. I also wanted to try out just using elastic as a waistband, the way a lot of factory made skirts do now a days. I probably won't do an elastic waist like this for sale - it's not very neat on the inside.
When I started making this I was going to make a dress, but, eh... I tried it on as a skirt and it seemed more versatile so I stopped there.
