This 36" long skirting is made from soft, light weight, rayon strands that move beautifully and will not dry out and "shed" over time. Multiple layers can easily be sewn together or hot glued for multiple thicknesses. Wear at the hip for Tahitian or at the waist for Hawaiian. To determine how much to order: measure hip or waist where you will wear the skirt and add 2 inches for overlap; then multiply that number by how many thicknesses you want. Triple thickness is recommended for a professional looking skirt. No returns on cut to order raffia skirting.
