Being that during summer break I had a lot of time to flex my sewing muscles, I picked apart the petticoat, leaving two panels (a front and a terribly ripped back) and their respective waistbands (set aside for now). I cut off the ripped half of the back panel, and sewed in a new panel. However, I figured since I already had the skirt's seams undone, I might as well make it wider--my original petticoat didn't have as much "fluff" and "bootylishisness" as I desired. So, I doubled the petticoat in width, adding a huge panel the same width as the original width of the petticoat. I sewed it all up, repleated it, and made a new waistband--slightly wider in case one of my friends needed to wear it or something, or to accommodate a future false rump.

|Sorry these photos are so blurry and the petticoat is so wrinkly!!|
|On the other hand, look how tan my back is!! These shots were taken right at the end of the summer.|
