French Flag Skirt

 This skirt was inspired by Batille day (the French national holiday July 14th) & the French flag, thus the bleu, blanc, et rouge colors.

I sewed it following this layered skirt tutorial, using blue broadcloth, white seersucker, & red broadcloth. Simple in design & easy to follow tutorial, just a little tedious & time consuming.

Happy Bastille day !

PS This skirt will be donated to Skirting the Issue which has motivated me, by the way, to get some skirt sewing done. This French flag skirt has been on my mind for a few months, for example, so it was nice to finally make one... more skirts for Skirting the Issue coming up this next month...
