My Ida-Maria, with little flower shaped buttons.

I love it! Think it’s too short for me to actually wear though :( I need to make a longer one.

    Lots of exclamation marks, but as you can see, I am excited. lol

    Great skirt, especially the fabric choice. I totally get you on the too short bit though. I did an Ida Maria skirt (which I should post) and it ended up sooo short. I wore it a few times with black tights but because it’s so poofy you feel like your hoo-ha’s going to be shown to the world if you bend or sit.

    Regardless it looks great on you and I definitely concur with the other’s that some opaque tights would help with the shortness.

    I don’t think its too short! maybe put some black or red (to match the flowers) tights on and some gorgey shoes and you’ll look stunning!

    I don’t think it’s too short at all! Toss a pair of opaque tights on and the same color peep toe heels…to die for :)

    I agree with the other comments – wear some coloured tights or leggings underneath and you could definately wear it. Gorgeous fabric!
