More plaid awesomeness

I have been preppy-inspired...and inspired not to pay the retail (or even sale) prices for Ralph Lauren and Tommy Hilfiger, so here is knock-off #2:

I really like how this turned out - not the traditional colors I choose for her, but flattering nonetheless.

I made two slight alterations - used a heavy black elastic for the waistband and took up extra length from the middle (hidden) stay piece. Without doing that, the length of the tiers was unbalanced. It looks much better following the alteration.

There's a lot of twirl in the four tier version of this pattern - definitely approved by the girl!
