I made the petticoat (featured previously) just for the skirt, and now I can't decide whether I like it better with or without the petticoat. Oh, okay. I can decide just fine. I like it better seen from the front *with* the petticoat and seen from the side without. ;)
At any rate, I'm happy. Creativity - officially unstuck. And it's a fairly basic skirt, I can do a lot with something like this in the wardrobe.
With petticoat - ignore the tanktop, it went with a different outfit. Also ignore all the positioning in these poses, I put my arms over my head to get them out of the frame. I know it makes the hem/my torso a bit odd in turn.
Without petticoat, pictures taken by daughter.
Semi-coincidentally, I scored a white peasant blouse yesterday in a shopping trip to Penney's. It will do nicely with this skirt. My "heels" are some very cute mary-janeish things.... it will all coordinate. In my mind at any rate - we'll see how it runs in the flesh.
