Very nice issue this one, I made already few things from it and maybe will sew some more. But this skirt together with Polka Dots blouse was a real “must have” from the first sight. The only thing I changed – omitted the belt because of density of my fabric and because wasn’t sure I would wear it.
My notes about the sewing are here.
I also lengthened the skirt for 3 cm.

    Lovely outfit, looks great on you! Such a nice combination. I really like it without the belt. Nice flowers!

      Thank you, Rita:-) The belt would make it less practical because it supposes the tucked blouses only, it doesn’t always work.

      Thank you very much. You know I only understand it now that a woman needs a white and red skirts for summer because they are really mostly worn and match many things.
