I actually finished the skirt yesterday! It is completely and utterly beautiful! Now I am wishing I had taken my "free" day earlier in the summer so I could have worn it all season! No worries, it will make an awesome fall layering piece. I can't wait to show it to my friend, Thea, who is coming today (how fortunate). She is the layering queen and can tutor me on what to wear with it :)
This can actually be worn as a dress with the waistband unfolded like the top photo or folded down to wear as a skirt. To be honest, I didn't really think that through and plan it, it just happened that it works.
Now, I have to go shower and TODAY...I style my hair ;) really. i am going to do it.
