At some point during the summer I came across three yards of this striped silk taffeta in the prettiest shades of cream and greenish-gold. It was much to hot at that time to think of working with a fabric with this weight and body, but I knew it would was destined to be a full midi-length skirt with dramatic box pleats at some time in the future. So come the beginning of December it was finally the appropriate weather and season to get working on a festive striped silk skirt! While working on this skirt, I saw this collection which included this top and it was perfectly clear to me what had to be done.
