 Cheesy This reminded me of the Beatles "Let It Be"...."When I find my self in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me...speaking words of wisdom, let it be" - great inspiration Wink 
I've had this on my sewing table for about 2 years now, just waiting to be finished...but I couldn't just let it be a plain Jane black silk dupioni wrap skirt - UGH! So I put it off until recently - I found this awesome Our Lady of Guadalupe fabric....perfection!! After putting four panels on - I decided it still didn't quite look finished - so I rummaged around and found this super huge vintage lace - it's about 5" long!!! I loved it so much - I actually wore it to dinner out tonight  Grin Please let me know what y'all think...

I am super jealous of the fabric!!!

it looks cute with the boots but would also look good in the summer with some sandals. the silk could be dressed up or down. love it Cheesy well done!
