BUT! I must have been drunk with the California sunshine because the sewing and proportions on this skirt are much, much worse than I realized at the time. The saleslady was charming and the mirror in the store bad. But, I still really like the prints, so it is worth the time to fix.
You can see in my first picture, that the yoke (upper tier) is much too long and I think the over all length is simply too long for a day dress. I would keep tripping on it.
So, I am going to shorten the upper tier, fix some of the horizontal elastic stitching and re-hem this skirt AS QUICKLY AS I CAN.
Simplicity has me on a very tight deadline this week. (not complaining, at all, just saying)
Now I'm happy with this skirt. It will be a good traveling skirt. I can roll it up in the corner of my suitcase.
You know, I always swore I wouldn't be like the older ladies who wear their hair in the same style they did in high school. For the most part, I try to keep up with modern fashions that I think look good on me. But, let's face it. I went to high school during the Hippie days and I feel very at home in a Hippie skirt. So I'm happy I can now call it Boho and say I'm in fashion!
