Working my way through the Spring Wardrobe Fabric Stash... I got 'round to sewing up the white-rose tiered skirt. It goes with three (at least) of my blouses and most of my tanktops.
It came out a bit fluffier than my last skirt did. I wanted more fluff at the hem and seem to have more at the top too! (I really like a *lot* of fabric at the hem of my tiered skirts - it's like I'm wearing nothing at all, they hold really far away from my legs, and I have loads of room to move around).
It took me a while to figure out which embroidery stitch I'd use to hem and finish the gathers - somehow this print didn't work with most of the usual suspects.
This is my Zyla "tranquil color" - the color I'm supposed to turn to at the end of a long day, or when I need to chill out and center generally. We'll see if I find myself reaching for this skirt at those times. For now, I'm pairing it with an aqua tanktop while I start my day. Tiered cotton skirts are workhorses in my life all summer long - they're cool, they're comfortable, they launder easily, and they help me look put together effortlessly. And now I have three... :)
