Description

my favorite skirt in the WORLD!!!! a skirt that finally fits me!

more about it at oonaballoona: godsakes not the paisley

now that the weekend’s here, a little more info on it: i used simplicity 2473, project runway. it’s the same pattern i used for my “hattie dress”. just the bottom half, though. i extended the hem about 5 inches, and topstitched the invisible zipper in bright purple thread— not the point, of course, but i liked how it looked

Material Notes

awesome silky cottton ish stuff, satin lining, invisible zip

    An explosion of colour. Beautiful fit. Love that high waist. Is there a term for such a high waist?

    I love your choice of colors and print on print, it make a very bold and beautiful statement.

      thank you! the fabric actually came as huge flowered squares surrounded on all sides by the paisley border, so i cut the paisley away & reattached for hem & waistband. so i can’t take too much credit for putting the two together :)
