How to sew a balloon skirt

Sissi balloon skirt PDF sewing pattern

European: 158-42 International: Kids M-Womens L USA: Junior 5 - size 12 UK: Teens 13 - size 14 62-104 (6 mo-4/5yr) 110-152 (5-12yr)

We love the drape of our SISSI balloon skirt! As there is no zipper or button closure (making it supremely comfortable!) the upper part of the skirt should be sewn from a stretchy material. The lower part of the skirt can be sewn in just about any fabric you can think of.
