In sewing I am mainly driven and inspired by the beauty of fabrics. This one (“Waltz”), by Nani Iro, collection 2012 I think, is a favourite of mine, very nice colours and lovely pattern (naniiro.jp, nice online store too)
Thus, I made a simple A-linke skirt to emphasize the fabric and not more. Cosy to wear due to the very soft cotton of the fabric. Fits to a lot of tops of different colours.

Back and front part are very different in the pattern, thus can be worn either with the front or back side in front (does not make a big difference in fitting)
Very cosy double gauze cotton (2 layers stitched at some points together, not visible)
