Hello everyone  Smiley

First off ... "Yes" I did get my Hair cut ! lol its a big deal for me .. ( first hair cut in 11 years)

Any way on to the sewing ... Here is A quick skirt I made .. using red sheers and a lace curtain panel .. I think it looks kinda Victorian Goth to me ...Its not very practical for everday .. but it makes for good pictures and I'm sure it will come in handy as some sort of costume ...
I used the drawstring method for the rushed part in the middle of the front and back .. so its adjustable too ... Also the Bows are just safety pined on for now .. because I think the shade of red is wrong .. it needs to be closer to the color of the waist band .. But the only red lace I had on hand is what you see.. there is also black lace in the ribbon but its kinda hard to See against the  black... Any way let me know what you think ...

Oh yeah sorry for the excess of pics .. Me and my Auto Timer had a fun fake Photo Shoot today lol Cheesy













close up of the rushing detail

here it is on my dress form .. so you can see the bottom better

oh and hte shirt Im wearing is not the one I intended to .. the other one is way cuter but I couldnt find it ....

Thanks so much for looking
As always Have a great night
Jayne

It may not be practical, but it looks amazing! I bet if you made the skirt in more of a black/burgundy combo, it would look really spiffy with your hair Smiley
Also, where did you get your boots? I love them!
