KCW - 3 skirts - flat front back elasticised skirt

Hi All, I made 3 skirts for KCW. Its my first ever KCW or for that matter any online challenge. I was deliberating 2 options - if I should make a simple tunic or a elasticised skirt and finally ended by making elasticised skirt rather skirts. This post is full of photos only - I'll soon try make a tutorial for this.

UPDATE: Full pattern and tutorial click  Phus phus skirt free pattern

All skirts use my favorite gathering method.
I've had 3 attempts before.
Flat front back elasticised skirt first attempt
Flat front back elasticised skirt second attempt
Flat front back elasticised skirt third attempt
Time taken: The one without lining took 3 hours and one with lining took 4 hours. I was also preparing the pattern along.

Making the pattern has been maths maths and maths really and a bit of window shopping at stores staring at garments to understand how things are put together. I love maths. It always used to be a competition at school - who would answer maths questions first on calculus and algebra. I used to be one of the first to answer.:)
Ok, I back to the photos.

 This one is with lining. Detailed photos of this below. It took 4 hours to complete this.
This took a little less than 3 hours to complete. To see detailed photos go here

This one took 3 hours to complete. I totally love this and it looks great as well.My daughter has the habit of pulling the skirt down below her tummy and these straps help prevent that.
