To clear away all misunderstanding this piece was designed to be a dress. But while trying it and experimenting I saw that it could be worn as a skirt too. So versatile! The dress is constructed of several layers (flounces). The upper, last layer is not ruffled but straight and it ties up front with a thin strap.
But, by adding a sash or a thiny, thin belt it transforms into a lovely, flowy dress!
