Your skirt is absolutely beautiful.  You should be proud.  I wish there was a knit version of it, I can't crochet for beans.

Oh, that's lovely, well done. Grin  I'd suggest a different color fabric for underneath, though (I hope you haven't sewn the two layers together), as the cream is quite close to your skin color and is a bit disconcerting.  A nice dark violet, or a black, would be much better suited to the skirt, I think.  Or even a white.

Yay! I'm so glad everyone likes it!!  The yarn is Baby Bee sweet delight baby in soft licorice.  It's a really pretty brown, but it does definitely have a little purple to it. 

By the way, I have a question:  this yarn claims to be a bulky weight yarn, but it is CLEARLY much thinner than that.  Why are baby yarns marked so much bulkier than they really are? i've always wondered about that.
It depends on how the yarn is spun. Many yarns that are fluffy have what's called a "halo" around the core of the yarn and when you work it up it comes out thicker. (it's really noticeable in hand spun yarns) It can also make it harder to use a smaller crochet hook. So Most companies label the yarn as thicker to make everyones life easier. Smiley

It looks lovely and warm great job!

Thanks Eliea for clearing that up for me!!

The book is Amazing Crochet Lace, and it is wonderful.  I've thought about making a different colored slip for contrast.  The one i bought was just a cheapo white one from walmart. But it would be fun to try different colors too.  It also has a drawstring waist, so it can fit to anyone's size. i thought that was a nice touch.

That's absolutely stunning. I bet it's so much fun to wear. I saw one simmilar at Urban Outfitters, but yours is SOOOO much cuter and much better constructed (plus I love the purplish/brown color!). It's fabulous, if I had it I'd always wear it and smile!  Cheesy
