    Ahhh, such an inspiration to make several wrap skirts for spring! I love the white with black netting over it, but they are all wonderful. Thank you.

    Thakoon caught my eye-not just the color, the fabric drape, the lining and the tulip edge cut. Oh Ya!

    I love the Dosa skirt. It’s nicely done quilting and very fresh.

    I have white rick rack printed onto a pink and blue stripped patterned fabric in my stash that’s called “Cherries Jubilee” by Mary Lou Weidman for Benartex, style # 162 that’s sorta on that order.

      I agree with you. I have have a leather skirt from her that is at least 10 years old. Still stunning, even though it no longer fits.

      The picture is from burda style magazine’s 4/2010 issue, and the fabric is not cited. It looks very “Missoni” to me. Those beautiful Missoni dresses with that weave are normally viscose. Maybe you can search for that…
