After finishing off the blue taffeta circle skirt, I quickly wanted to make the skirt up again in a new fabric – the pattern cuts up so quickly, sews up so quickly, and I’ve had a lot of fun wearing my skull-print skirt from before, and I love how it wears too – so once I was on a roll, I wanted to keep it  up.

From my stash of skull-print fabrics, I picked out another black and white skull print, this time a much larger print; much more white than black, but I still thought it would be cute.  Just like the original skull-print skirt, it’s just a cotton print, so it’s lightweight which means it should hang nicely with or without the crinoline under it.

The hem is a wide band of horsehair nylon braid, which gives the circle skirt nice shape and fullness – plus I didn’t need to worry about hemming the wide circle.
