    Oh, this is so so so adorable! And the zipper looks great too. Haha I always look because I’m so bad at putting them in and there was a close up!

      Thank you so much, Gina! I always use longer zippers, because it’s easier to put them in. Short ones are my nightmare ;).

    Love your skirt ! The soft pleats open so nicely to a full skirt, yet not so full.

    Great work and going-out after look !

      Thank you very much, Reneebies! The button is vintage and I thought it would work great with a 50’s style skirt.

      It was too hot for petticoat, when I took this picture. However, I wear it from time to time :).
