one thing that my teacher didn’t teach me about balloon skirt ‘concept’ (and some other balloon skirts out there i found ) is that balloon means that this skirt must be filled with something so it looks filled or bubble, or blow from inside.
What I used is making inner skirt with ruffle lace (you can use tulle) inside.
1. the bottom: sew ruffled lace 2 layers close each other so it will be stronger to hold the bottom part of the skirt and give the ‘air’ effect on the bottom.
2. middle: no need to sew closely between layers.
3. top: sew ruffled lace 2 layers closed each other so the ballon effect is started at the top of the skirt.
