Skirt Completed

The skirt with the waistband of Petersham ribbon per tutorial I mentioned below. I finished it last night and when I came home from the gym in the top I wore there Bob took this photo. The skirt is lined in Duchess Satin in a jade green I had in my stash. Not sure what top I'll wear with this, certainly not this one it's from Under Armour a shop on the net for work out garments in this new age fabric. 
The fabric is wool and it has a pattern you can see here enlarged. Now I'm working this afternoon on putting together a muslin for a dress for my daughter before I cut the pattern out of really beautiful brocade. 
*I'll be drawing for the two give away items on Sat so enter if you have not on that post below, so far there are 16 of you in the drawing.

You look amazing.
Sorry I entered so many times......I didn't mean too, hah.
I will keep my fingers crossed, hah.
I recently won a giveaway......but was sent someone's order from the same person. I then had to mail this order to that person and still haven't gotten the giveaway......hah, that's just my luck,

I love the cut. It hangs beautifully and looked more like jersey cotton until I enlarged it. What a great skirt to wear. You always impress...smiles...Renee

I understand that the fabric isn't right, but I love the look of that top with the skirt - the color is amazing on you.

Your skirt turned out beautifully! Love the lining too! Haven't seen well-made clothing such as you're making for a long time, but maybe I don't shop in the right places :)
