I made this three tiered skirt a very long time ago. It was my favourite but it doesn't fit anymore. I cut the flowers and leaves out and ironed vliesofix applique paper on the back of the flowers and then ironed them on to the bottom of the skirt. I then cut out the little holes on the flowers. I used the satin stitch on my sewing machine and stitched around all the flowers and leaves and the the cut outs. To finish off I stitched black beads in the centre of the flower. The photo doesn't show but the flowers are in three shades.
