I bought this fabric thinking I'd make a dress out of it, and then decided that head-to-toe in this particular print would be a lot to ask of any viewer. It's aqua and green bubbles, in a rather large scale. It kinda makes my eyes tired.
So what did I do instead? Why, made it into a big fat dirndl skirt, of course! (I'm *sure* this will be easier on the eyes! lol) Thanks to Gertie's excellent dirndl skirt tutorial, I whipped this up in 45 minutes, and still had time to customize the eBay Calvin Klein shoes I wanted to wear with it! What I love is that it's full enough that I don't feel like I need a crinoline under it. Of course, that means it makes my derriere look even bigger than it is.... but I don't care. How can you be unhappy with a skirt that has bubbles, and isn't *tight* on you anywhere?
These shoes had ugly fake gems on the front, so I took them off and found the perfect ribbon to take their place. Shoes: $17 + shipping on eBay. Ribbon: $2.69 at JoAnn's.
Sweater: Salvation Army, $2.99
Skirt: Gertie's tutorial, fabric and zipper from my stash
Harrods Floral Tote Bag: Gift from my mom-in-law
Tshirt: I think it was from Target, but I reshaped it and cut the neckline into a ballet neck.
