The romantic Hettie skirt makes up beautifully in a light or medium weight fabric with fluid drape. Think crepe, satin, chiffon etc. Fabrics with more body like cotton and linen also work well, just keep in mind that the gathers will be more pronounced with the extra volume! Make it up in solid colours, ditsy florals or cotton eyelet.

Fabric advice

The romantic Hettie skirts look lovely in a light- or medium weight fabric with a fluid drape. Think crepe, satin, muslin, chiffon, etc. Somewhat stiffer fabrics such as cotton, linen, etc. also work. Just keep in mind that the ruffles will be a little more pronounced. The Hettie skirt looks sweet in solid, delicate print and eyelet fabrics.
