Hmmm. Bubble skirt?

I’ve never been a big fan of the bubble, or pouf, skirt. Maybe it brings back memories of bad ’80s fashion for me. But then, I saw this dress on The Sartorialist.

I never would have thought to make a jersey bubble skirt. I like it! I’m not sure if it will like me but I thought I’d give it a shot anyway. I bought this Simplicity pattern and pulled some rayon jersey out of my stash. I’ll let you know how it goes!

  1. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I’ve been going back and forth as to whether I like this style or not and it’ll be nice to see it on someone!

    Make this soon! I have this pattern and I bought it for the pants. The skirt is growing on me though. It’s definitely not the 1980s fluffy pouffy thing!

  3. I think this will work Gigi! The version on The Sartorialist looks to be ungathered where the yoke meets the skirt – so maybe you could combine the bubble version with the one to right of it on the pattern envelope.

  4. I just made up this bubble skirt pattern. You can read my review on patternreview.com. Easy-peasy!
