I finally finished this, after working on it on and off for about a year!  Now I just need to wait for cooler weather so I can wear it!

It looks wonderful. Rich colours & lush fabrics, bet it feels marvelous & twirls even better!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

That looks awesome!  Nice color/pattern choices that work great together as a whole.   What are you planning to pair it with when you do wear it?

I agree with CLM. Reminds me of Victorian era crazy quilts with all their velvets, satins, brocades, and laces. Looks so comfortable as well. Congrats on finishing the skirt!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Thank you!

What are you planning to pair it with when you do wear it?

I think it will look good with any of my lacy or ruffly blouses.  Maybe a black or purple sweater when it's cold.  It will also probably look good with the faux corset cumberbund thing I also need to finish!  Cheesy
