i made this for a girl that i was friends with. We were going to a goth night, and the theme was circus//masquerade.

It took about five hours. That is including designing the skirt, cutting out the pieces, hand basting the pleats and sewing it all together. It is made out of Day of the Dead fabric from my stash, Black&white striped cotton and lace that i've had forever. i recycled the zipper from a pair of shorts.

Sorry for the terrible pictures, but my photobucket is doing odd things and i really cannot get better ones.

My lovely and patient body pillow is modeling the skirt in the first shot.


This is the only picture i got of it on Cheshire. Taken with a cellphone, in a dimly lit house. Before all of her makeup was on. We were going to do an actual photo-shoot. But we had a mild falling out.

Falling out?  OH NO! Well, I hope it works out.   I cant see very well, but what I can see does look pretty sweet. I love the fabric.  I like the top it is paired with as well.  Nice job!

Too bad photobucket is an [offensive expletive of your choice]. It looks like a really cute outfit though with an interesting combination of fabrics. I'm a sucker for anything striped Smiley. Hopefully it will be more cooperative later and you can repost some larger pics, I'd really like to get a better look at it.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Even tho we are all in our 20s, some of my friends decided to revert to high school. Thank you tho. The top is a hottopic-y "corset" but it looked perfect.

Photobucket is a jerk. Stripes are epic tho, thank you.

Thanks! i need to post more pictures of stuff i have made.

Haha, that would not work well. "Hello ladyface, you dislike me, but you know that skirt i made? Yeah, i would love it back". i am hoping that we get over our differences at least long enough for a photoshoot.

Thank you all for the nice comments.
