The Damask and Dots Twirling Skirt!

I made this skirt for my daughter's friend and classmate who turned 7 today.

This skirt is so full (almost 90 inches at its fullest/ circumference) and is perfect for twirling. 

When laid down, it actually makes a full circle. That's how full the skirt is!

The damask print and the brightness of the color makes this skirt a great addition for your princess' spirng and summer wardrobe! You can even make one for yourself!

To make this skirt, I used my Layered gathered skirt with shirred waist tutorial, minus the shirring. I also added a waistband where I inserted an elastic band. 

This skirt was made for a 7-year old girl. 
The fabric pieces measured:

Skirt layer 1: (2 pcs.) 10" x 44"
Skirt layer 2: (2 pocs.) 8" x 44"
Skirt layer 3: 5.5" x 44"
Damask band for hips: (2) 4" x 13"
Waist band: (2) 2.5" x 13"
Elastic band: 1" x 20"

I also made hairclips to go with the skirt. 

I really hope the birthday girl liked the skirt. I wouldn't know until monday. ^^)

I just love this little skirt but am wondering where you got your fabric measurements from since I'd like to make a size 4. Thank you for your help!
