I finished up Marie. It took me a while to figure out how I wanted to do the skirt. I knew it had to be big and full but I didn't want to stuff it. So I decided to basically make a hoop skirt. Sewn into the hem of the skirt is a 12" wooden embroidery hoop. It lays perfectly flat and the actual stand is under the skirt. I did have to make a bum roll for her waist so that the top of the skirt puffed out.
