Well chosen name. This skirt swirls so much, I’m sure any french can-can girl would have loved to wear it on stage. This is an Ottobre pattern and this time I felt let down by Ottobre big time. The pattern calls for 2 meters or velvet ribbon for the hem embellishment. Well, I got exactly 2 meters… and felt short of 10 cm when sewing it on. I though about it for a couple of days, then fetched out a remnant of this fabric, cut out a flower and sew it on. Ta da! Problem solved:
