So...I got LOTS of awesome comments on my first umbrella skirt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263260.0
So I thought I'd post my second attempt here too:
So...I tried to make this one more wearable than the original...I made the waistband out of a pair of pants I had laying around in my stash...made it thicker than the typical waistband...then added the tab detail...that was on the pants originally...
then...the umbrella for the skirt part...it was a cuter print than the original, I think...
Anyway, here's a close up of the print:
the edges (I left on the little metal thingies):
and on my dressform (it doesn't fit quite right, so I had to pin it, that's why there's that huge wrinkle, it isn't usually there):
I like the way it turned out, what do y'all think?
