Pattern Review: Self-Drafted Dirndl Skirt

This is pretty much the easiest skirt I ever made.
I loosely followed the directions from Gertie.  It's basically a dirndl skirt, just two gathered rectangles of fabric.  The fabric is by Carrie Bloomston--I really liked the newspaper strips print.

I figured out the length of skirt I wanted, and cut two rectangles the width of the fabric.  I measured myself to figure out the circumference of the waistband, and stitched the gathered rectangles to grosgrain ribbon stays of the appropriate length.  I cut a waistband of the appropriate length and interfaced it, then assembled the skirt in the usual way.
Overall, a very quick and easy project.  Highly recommended!
