my friend called it a praire skirt but i'm not sure i quite agree...anyway it used to be this...

but i felt too much like a mermaid because it was so fitted at the top and then flared out so much.  i had to make it smaller than i would have wanted because i was a bit short on the lace since i got it on sale and only so much of it was left.  so to fix it i removed the waistband (which i'm super proud of) and shortened it up to a more "kicky" length...

i really like it.  especially when i go down the stairs and the whole bottom part floofs out really big.

and a close up of the fabric and lace:

here's the semi-matching top: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31477

heh, I have to agree that it's a prarie skirt, but those are oh so trendy now so it works out nicely.  Now all we need is a picture of the whole ensemble together

laden autumn, here I stand

Mm. I likes. Lace skirts (well... with things you wouldn't expect them with) are my cup-of-tea.
By the way.. I first read it as "pirate skirt"... and it worked for that too, at least in my exam-addled brain... (it's got that old-timey feel to it). Brava.

i've always loved pairing sweet girlie skirts with tank tops... and that one will look good with a white or brown one. you did a good job shortening that.
