I was at the California State Fair last week for the first (and hopefully last - that place is expensive!!) time, and I was stuffing my face with cotton candy when inspiration struck me.
This skirt isn't made primarily from scraps - I actually went out and purchased fabric for this one (yay me!)  But I think it still counts as a reconstruction because the base of the skirt is a vintage half-slip.




Close-up of my favorite detail, I'm so proud of the beading XD:


Comments? Criticisms?


Here are some additional close-ups:

How much time did you put into it?  It looks so detailed and very well crafted.  Kudos!

Thank you thank you XD.
I think I spent about three days more or less non-stop working on this skirt.  It was way more fiddly than any other skirt I've made because I wanted the strips of fabric to be thinner so I could get as many different textures on the skirt as possible...If that makes any sense  Tongue

Ohh that is beautiful.
You really did a fantastic job with it and I definitely see the resemblance to cotton candy.
I would wear that with much pride, ahh I want it! =]
