I found this amazing dyed cotton eyelet at Mood Fabric and decided I MUST have it. Add vintage pattern for skirt and voila! Pretty skirt that I shall now discredit by showing you poor poor pictures of...

It's a modified circle skirt, tried to demonstrate the fullness... probably should've just worn my crinoline.

It IS even, I'M even... unless my hips have been lying to me... I don't know what happened in this image. But this is what it's like laying sans petticoat.

a closeup of the box-pleats because they took me SO long to do (though a good portion of that was me trying out various kinds of pleats to see which would work best... but aside from that... took me a long time >_<).

Anyhowzin, it looks amazing underneath a corset or with a wide belt in contrasting color. I wore it to a recent event and wish I could show the whole get-up, alas my scanner refuses to comply. Oh well. Thanks for looking!

That's beautiful. I'd love to have a skirt like that.

Where is my mind?
