More of the acid yellow merino fabric you first saw here. I bought it around the time of the BurdaStyle blog article on the same. Finally, it comes to life!

The skirt is made of missoni fabric. The zig-zag selvedge is maintained for the skirt edge – see the fourth pic

It’s still winter in Australia. And, my, how we fantasise about bright colours in the depths of winter! this design came to mind as a doodle in my margins at work…. Then, surprisingly today was the hottest August day in the past four years at 26 degrees…

It was suddenly summer.

The skirt kit has now been given away… keep an eye out for more giveaways here
