More green and blue

This is my first solo skirt. When I was in college I had a wonderful roommate (Liz) who helped me make a couple of skirts, but this is the first I have done on my own. It turned out way better than I thought it was going to and I like it a lot. I think I will go ahead and find some material to line the inside with to make it a little less transparent. I love the blue flowers and I'm glad I finally got brave enough to cut this material. One of these days I will figure out how to post pictures from the places that inspire these creations. For now you will have to be satisfied with the pictures I take.


Here is a closeup of the fabric.
It isn't quite as cream colored as it looks,
but it isn't bright white either.

You know, Nokiomi, you could sell a mens version too, as long as it's marketed as a kilt. Men don't wear skirts, but apparently they do wear kilts.

Wonderful roommate Liz... I am so flattered! -Wait, you never had another roommate Liz did you? :)- Your sewing projects are great! And I am very envious of your fabric stash- I've been sewing like a crazy woman for this baby- only 24 days to go woohoo! I love your new blog! Keep up the good work!
