New Skirt Style

Last week I worked up a new, long skirt. It has a clever drawstring at the back that gathers the fabric and creates a small, modern bustle.

Backing the picture train up, Part 2

And here are the ribbon straps for the sundresses.

Backing the picture train up

Here are the skirts I finished a week and a half ago. If you're interested (and local) the pink swirl will be on the floor at vive later this week.

And back to skirts

I'm back on skirts this week. I managed to procure more of the tone on tone red print I posted about early on, so I'll be using that this week for the current skirt incarnation.

Dresses, Round 1

Last week I put 1 dress style in 3 fabrics on the floor - a brown floral print, a lime green with pinks and white flowers, and a turquoise and green Hawaiian floral stripe. I added cute ribbon tie straps, but you'll have to wait for a picture of those.

Here is a pic of the brown floral print on one of the dress forms.
