my recent project: skirts, skirts, and more skirts.

okay, so these beauties have been my project for the past month.

i call it the two-fer.
1. because thats a guy's nickname on 30 rock and it makes me laugh every time.
2. its a skirt, but you can make it look like a dress. two for one. dress & skirt.


i love these skirts because they are perfect for a transition, or even year round, piece. photos below show the skirts in winter/fall & spring/summer options.

they will slowly be making their way into the shop once all my lovely fabric comes in. they will also be available in maternity. I can't figure out if i'm going to size them or make them custom order.

input will be well-received.



my first venture. fabric: home decor weight (no slip!) joel dewberry ginseng flowers.




fabric: anna maria horner's (home decor weight) plumes in raspberry.




look
familiar? fabric: Michael Miller's Henna Garden in Citrus.



my favorite. fabric: anna maria horner's (home decor weight) trellis in teal



let me know your thoughts! :) i would love to hear (/read) your honest opinions.

love.

(thanks to my handsome hubby for taking these pictures!)

  2. I love them! My favorite is the one done in the Plumes in Raspberry fabric. Is this length going to be standard? I have knobby knees I like to keep hidden.

  3. definitely not standard. i will make some shorter and some longer, most definitely.

    i will do custom orders as well, so you can give me the length you want.

  12. They are adorable! I too would want it to hit at the top of my knee to mid-knee (approx. 19" long). Best wishes with your endeavor!
