I thought you might ask that. Doing a Google Image Search for "wrap skirt" will give you lots of ideas in terms of fabrics, embelishments, length, etc, but this is the basic idea:



Since you're wearing it over trousers, it can be any length (I wear them much shorter than I would wear a normal skirt, for example) and you don't have to fuss as much over whether it wraps properly, since you won't be flashing anyone. Wink

I especially like that the colors aren't the normal confederate flag colors.

It actually reminds me more of John Sim's reimagined flag than the actual flag. Unfortunately, the artist's page seems to be down, but one of his flags can be seen in this story.

If you're going to wear trou underneath the skirt anyway, a wrap skirt might be the simplest solution. Also, easypeasy to sew, since it would only be one piece plus the trim/tie!

Sorry to repost to your thread, but I just had to say that your sig line had me sputtering roobios tea. My husband used to have that as his desktop background, in a font just like in the movie. Heh.

What is CSS?
CSS stands for "cascading style sheets." They are the preferred way of handling the design elements of your page (eg, layout, fonts, colors). Ideally, HTML should just be used for the content (some images, text).

You can learn more about CSS at the World Wide Web Consortium, HTMLHelp.com, and elsewhere online.

I used to do ALTs for my graphics, but it made the process take a lot longer, so in the interest of brevity I cut it out.  Also, when I go to web pages, the ALT titles kind of annoy me, so I guess I'm playng to my own tastes.
Sorry they annoy you, but they're considered good design and may help with your site's search engine placement. More info on this.

What is PDF format and how would it make the order form work better?
Since your page makes use of frames, a PDF would make printing the order form easier for your buyers. Like rocknroll said, it does require that your visitors have the free download Adobe Acrobat Reader.

I like the look of your site. Some recommendations:
  •   Rather than go with tables, I recommend learning CSS to design your pages.
  •   All your images need ALT text.
  •   Make your order form a PDF.
  •   The long menu is something of a problem; maybe the way to go is to consolidate it into different categories (put tops, bottoms, dresses under a head category of "clothing," maybe make a FAQ for all your shipping, sizing and contest info?

Hope this helps Smiley

This is really beautiful, yet simple. There's something very lonely and aloof about the robot's face.
19  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: Favorites or Bookmarks on Craftster on: November 15, 2005 09:59:35 AM
I know Leah is still working on this feature, but I wanted to recommend del.ico.us as an awesome alternative that I've been using. I use it for all my bookmarks, not just my Craftster ones, and am able to access them from any computer with an Internet connection, not just my laptop.

Basically, you post your links to del.icio.us and tag and describe them. So, for example, I have the tag craftster that I use for anything I bookmark from here, then I add additional tags to better describe the project (eg, sew, tut, paperarts).

Using delicious, you can peek at my Craftster bookmarks, as well as all delicious users' bookmarks tagged craftster here. That's the other great feature, I think--you can browse other people's bookmarks!
