The fabric is absolutely beautiful and drapes nicely.  I got a lot of compliments 
when I wore this dress last summer to a bar-b-que.  I love the look of the 1950s "Full Skirt".  These skirts can be made out of damn near any cotton print or solid colored fabric.  I will be
making many more of these.
