Here is my third skirt for Skirt Week 2012! I like to call it the Flirty Little Flip Skirt because it flips out a little near the bottom hem and it makes me feel pretty. It’s a date skirt, for sure.
I’m working on some instructions for this skirt right now because I’ve already received a lot of compliments and comments from friends like, “Tell me how to make that skirt!”
Sadly, or maybe gladly?, this skirt is already starting to feel a little loose on me. It’s good to know that the running is paying off — I ran a 7-miler on Saturday — but it also means that I might be making another one of these, in a smaller size, in the near future. I guess that gives me all the more reason to hammer down those instructions, huh?
I’ll give you one guess where I bought the fabric. Yes: the LA fabric district! At Michael Levine’s loft! Seriously, I should be paid to advertise for them. But don’t worry. I’m not. 🙂
The bottom is embellished with some crocheted lace from my grandmother’s stash. She gave it to me when she moved and I’m going to have a life crisis once I’ve used it all up. It’s a magnificent stash, so that won’t be a for a long time. (Thank you, Grandma Jessie!)
P.S. The shirt I’m wearing in these pictures is the Alabama Chanin top I was working on in this post. It’s not technically finished (I still need to add two more rows of ruffles and beading), but I wear it anyway. Does anyone else do that?
