Jupe a volants

Jupe a volants is a free skirt tutorial in French from independent french pattern making company Papillon et Mandarin available here. It’s a lovely pattern although I feel it runs a little on the small side. I made a size 8 for my 5 year old. Maybe French five year olds are as slender as their grown up counterparts?

I had this remnant of Hamburger Liebe from Carfty Mamas but turns out that the pattern recommendations for required fabric is a bit of an underestimate. Thought that it was unlikely to need only 55cm but lived in hope! I could have made the last layer in four pieces but chickened out. I do like it but wish I had gone with three layers in the same fabric.
