In all the best ways, I copied Rhonda's Circle Skirt, shown here.
I made my skirt so it would rest right above my hip bone. (Forgive the top of my undies showing at the waist area above the skirt waistband on your left. I could have photoshopped it out, but I know you understand.)
Rhonda lives over 1000 miles away from me, so I trust we will not be seen wearing the same skirt!
I finished this with a simple rolled hem on the serger, lined it with a lightweight cotton, and really enjoyed wearing it to work today, along with a lime green cardigan (not shown). I wanted you to see the skirt in it's simple state, along with my grey tank top and high heeled sandals.
I got to like this skirt more and more as I wore it today. It moves so nicely when I walk. I anticipated this, due to the color and pattern, but it attracted quite a bit of attention today. A total stranger, plus 4 different people I work with (who normally never comment on my clothing) commented on this skirt today. And among those who did not comment, I saw eyes travelling down to look at it all day, whether people commented or not.
I got the sense that this skirt made the day a bit more colorful not only for me but for those who were around me.
