The splatter print is a cotton/lycra blend and the solids are rayon blends. The skirt is lined with some really weird ribbed dot print nylon blend fabric (the same as the too tight dress lining) that works out well as it’s smooth and heavy. But would have looked crap as a dress. Or anything really.
The top is SO easy to make (Quick & Dirty tutorial here. And the skirt is just a front and back attached to a double fold waist band. Super easy, especially on a serger.
I also made these peacock feather earrings. Which provided some comic relief when one went rouge from the earwire and got stuck to the collar of my coat. Lol, I am not an experienced jewelry maker.
