I made another skirt! This time I used a pile of my white and blue scraps, and some very nice silk dupioni which was definitely not a scrap to start with - just a product of a frustrating failed dress (haven't we all been there...Or am I the only one who refuses to 'measure twice and cut once'?)
Anywho, on to the pictures.  I was so excited when I finished last night that I wanted to take pictures right away, so here are some 'on-the-hanger' pictures.  Action shots will of course follow.

Yay! Another one!
Very pretty. I think I like this one best because of all the blue. Smiley
Great job.
I'm anxiously awaiting those action shots.

Thank you thank you!
I'm pretty anxious about the action shots too...Wonder if it would be too cruel to wake my 14-year old sister up before the crack of noon (she's my photographer)?

Super cute! I love the ruffles. You're not the only one, I measure once, cut twice FAR too often.

This is seriously adorable!
And mega-inspiring--I might have to save up all my scraps for something like this, but I'm sure it won't be nearly as good!

Your skirt reminds me of their style... It's beautiful!
I am sure you could get some cool ideas from here...
I did. I've got a top to post I just haven't gotten around to it.

The action shots REALLY made a difference in my opinion of the skirt. on the hanger it was like umm.... hmm. And on you it was like CUTE OUTFIT!!!!! <3 very lolita-esque and ADORABLE.
