Call me crazy and maybe I am since I volunteered to make some 50's style skirts for a friend whose family just opened a new 50's diner style restaurant. I figured the skirts would be very simple. They used to make them by cutting out a circle but fabric in those days was usually wider so now they tend to have seams unless you luck out on finding wide fabric. The pattern I purchased has only three pieces plus other patterns such as a crinoline. They wanted crinolines too which I had not planned on. I am hoping to get the skirts done in a week or so but it may take a little longer.
