I received!  Sadly, I can't take pictures of myself.  So I only have pictures of this adorable skirt on the hanger.  It's a transparent top layer (and drape) over a nude colored solid skirt.  It looks so cute on me (and fits perfectly).  Hopefully you can get the idea from the picture.

I'm so happy you like it! Smiley

I took some pictures on my dressform before I sent, hope it's ok to post them?


It should come to right above the knee




Closer shot (sorry for the ugly background  Grin)




Just to show that the drape it attached at sideseam and waistband and then tacked down, not part of the skirt front




I made beltloops and laced a ribbon through just for effect, I think it would look better with a small black belt or so; it's an elastic waistband and personally I think those look better covered




View of back. I cut the ribbon extra long, but it's just sealed with a lighter so easy to shorten.



It was basically a rectangle gathered to an elastic waistband, and I liked the drapeyness of the mesh so felt like the front drape would be appropriate. Rainysunshine789 said she wasn't picky so I got a lot of creative freedom. Wink

I was really happy to make it and I'm so glad you like it and it fits! Can't wait to see what everyone else creates, I love skirts! Smiley

I received the most awesome skirt today from Calabaza! Its so steampunky, but totally daily wear. Can you believe she made the pattern herself? I really don't have the best pictures since apparently my entire family is camera incapable (yes its a DSLR, but all you do is point and click. No, just hold it like a normal camera and push the button. Yes you have to look through the viewfinder... sigh) but with the help of my sister and my mom I got a decent one:



See how gorgeous! My sister even liked it (she prefers mini skirts in bright colors) and said that its coming to the Ren Faire with us!

And a close up of the pocket:



Gears! I really love it, and it fits great! Sorry its a little wrinkly in the pictures, I took it out of the box and immediately put it on! Thank you so much!

Whew! I'm glad you like it...and you thought it was steampunk-y! Steampunk is super hard for me to do, but somehow it just worked out this time  Grin Yay!

I had my mom model it before it left so I got some pics I thought I'd share:




That little frill below the ruching was a total pain, but I had tons of fun with everything!
