London, United K...
I bought a lovely navy silk noil. It feels quite like linen, but doesn’t have the unfortunate quality of creasing with even the slightest touch! The skirt is a circle skirt and is made from 12 panels. All the raw edges are finished so that it doesn’t fray, there is an invisible zip and 4 snaps that form the closure on the side.
The top is made from another top that I used as fabric and some bias tape.
The necklace is also made by me (the anchor is fimo clay), the belt is second hand.

Edit: I’ve posted a rough outline of how I made the skirt on my blog, http://dressesonaclothesline.blogspot.fr/2010/08/panel-skirt-tutorial.html
