Description

Another boutique fabric find, this tulip skirt is made with New Zealand silk, which after much debate has a stuffed olive pattern (I still think it’s some kind of floral bud pattern, but olives work with the cocktail thing). The big bow tops it off and makes it feel like you’re a big present :)

    This is such a pretty version I love your fabric choice! I can’t wait to make this it’s so cute! Fantastic job it looks very well made as well!

    CUTE!!! Some berries have that shape, too, btw. Question, if I may: Are you naturally hourglass, or does the skirt make you look more so? I’m small waisted with (coughs) a bubble butt and a sway back. Pencil skirts look hot, but some puffy skirts just make me look like my hips are freakishly big in the wrong places. Do you have any sense of how this skirt works in that regard, please? Thanks!
