silk bubble skirt

Here is a little skirt I made for S that will be given to her as a birthday present next month - A bubble skirt made with raw silk.
The silk was a present given to me several years ago by friends after a visit to India. I think I may make one for myself. I also have a piece in pretty pale yellow as well.
The material is stiff, crinkly and so beautiful. It really shimmers. I was happy to start putting it to use after all these years. I lined it with muslin.
If you are interested I could do a little tutorial on how I made it. It's pretty simple and looks equally nice in other materials.

Edit: She found the skit and immediately brought it to her room.

Just found this site through a comment you left on Dacia Ray and I'm glad I read the tips you left for the skirt because I've never worked with a zipper; I'm not at the part yet, but I look forward to it. I think a tutorial for this bubble skirt would be amazing!

I usually see this worn by Korean girls. They looked like barbie doll on those skirt.
