So it sat for weeks while I pondered over pockets, trims, buttons, drawstrings and other fancy embellishments. I finally arrived halfway - no pockets and a bottom trim. I still felt, however that something was missing. My siste r then suggested bringing some of the design down onto the trim and voila! That was it!
I'm really happy with the way this skirt turned out and I've been getting heaps of really nice comments when I've worn it. Everyone has been telling me how funky it is - and no one has asked if I bought it from Target. Phew!
