This is fun skirt made from a what appears to be a double weave jacquard fabric – the front and backsides of the material are both finished and can be used as the fashion fabric side of a garment. I just used one side and created this high waisted skirt. Let me tell you – it is super difficult to figure out what to pair with the skirt! I don’t really have khaki shirts, and anything else kind of looks weird. This white shirt did okay, I think because we paired with the necklace – but what would you wear with it? I love the shape of the skirt, there are four pleats in the front and in the back and the waistband is finished with green piping. The overall shape is slightly tulip-like, I made it last summer when that shape was super-trendy! It is a self-drafted pattern :) The material could be cotton, but I can’t remember. All I know is it was on a super-sale so I bought a couple of yards!
Milo (our cat) ran into quite a number of pictures, so I thought she could be included :)
