Victorian childrens mourning skirt with ruched apron overskirt
They can be worn separately or together and as underskirts as seen here with a ruched crepe overskirt-apron.
Preshrunk crepe used for ruched apron and skirt ruffles.
I added additional faux seams to the shorter top skirt to make it appear to be a 7 gore skirt. You will have to forgive the cat hair! ;) lol
I made the over-skirt into an apron with ruching & simply left the zipper seam open all the way to the hem to turn it into an apron, and making the bias tape waist band longer to create the ties for the apron.
