I've wanted a new red tea length skirt ever since my old one was destroyed by someone leaving a pen in the washing machine, which leaked ink on to my skirt (and my linen hand sewn, 12th century shift with smocked side gores). I had planned to make it only a plain, wide skirt, but then I got inspired by 1940s/50s american fashion inspired by latin american styles and ended up with this:



Not as versatile, but almost a full circle and very pretty. And I can always buy more cotton fabric and make a plain skirt too. I love the way it makes my hips look: nice and rounded.

Do you have a picture of the smocked-sided shift posted anywhere?
I've been thinking about making one, but I'm not really sure how to go about it.
