  1. What pattern did you use for the yellow skirt? I tried making a dirndl skirt without a pattern the other day and it was a complete fail.

  2. There are two I used.

    This second tutorial helped me make the gathers in the skirt. I actually use yarn as the gathering string (as you will see in the tutorial). I seriously would not be able to make gathers with a piece of thread like real seamstress's do. I just do it this way.

    I hope this helps.
