  After my bolero, this is the first acutally wearable that I've made. I made mine out of red heart yarn, and I only used one color because I couldn't find a combination that I actually liked. Since you can see through the skirt, I wear tights under it when I wear it out in public. I actually get a few compliments.

I made mine in small, with fewer shells to make it shorter. I also added hearts on the ends of the strings instead of the little flowers, I liked how it turned out.

Actually after I finished I noticed it looked like Velma's skirt from Scooby Doo, so that's where it gets it name.



and here's a better shot of the pull strings...



here's the whole thing, the color is a bit off on it though...

That is very cute. You did a great job. And, yes, I can see the Velma skirt there too. And now I know her last name. I never knew it before.

I've been telling myself for months that I'm going to make this skirt and haven't.

Was it terribly difficult?? How see-through is it? What kind of Red Heart did you use (sport weight??)?

Sooooo cute!! You've inspired me to finally sit down and make the skirt.
