I'm hoping to wear it to the Homecoming dance this year, but I don't want to plan on it just in case I don't get asked. haha so we'll see how it goes. :)

I'm really happy with how it turned out, which is good because it was no easy feat. It's definitely nice when you like what you make. 

Floral Skirt #142

Friday, August 27, 2010

I'm beginning to wonder if I'll ever get sick of floral. Honestly half of my closet is adorned with the stuff and nothing has thus far stopped me from wanting more. So to add to the bundle, I made this skirt!

Please excuse the overly posed "lean against the tree and smile" look going on .

What's your favorite print? (Stripes, florals, polka-dots, etc)
