Added Jun 27, 2009
This creation is a combination of 2 past creations that didn’t suit me. I used a somewhat bulky black one-way stretch for a party skirt and a printed silk for the Azalea dress. After removing all of the seams the skirt became a high-waisted short-short and I added t tiers of gathered silk print with a zip up the back. I had to hand sew in the zipper because I have yet to master my zipper foot.
Now I can jump around all summer and not give away my victoria’s secrets!
