Description

I had grey-brown boots an nothing matched- so I bought this fabric,
only some stripes of the pattern do match but this is perfect!
next problem: I wanted differnet but matching fabric for a wide waistband… and I found a very nice grey toned cord;
It took many time to pleat the cord- because I wanted some pleats underneath- but I´m too small and and so the hole skirt is a bit short at all and it didn´t look very nice in this size…
but without pleats it looked a bit boring- so I get the idea of the flower! I like it soooooo much!
(besides, I preserve the pleated cord- I´m sure one day I can use it :-) )
