Snappy!

Look what I made! Remember when I got all ga-ga over that cute applique skirt from Boden? Here is my original (and way cheaper) version!

I really like it. It took longer than it should have... I don't know why, but I had trouble manuvering around the waistband and bulky cordory. It's a little bit "country"... but I'm working it.

Here's a detail. You know I'm all about the leaf/pod/eyeball shape.
The wool felt I bought from the local quilt shop was divine. Luckily I remembered to pre-wash it.

I read somewhere that tights are hot this year... so maybe I'll get another pair or two. And maybe I'll even pack it to wear in Houston. I'm leaving on Friday! Can you say excited?

Love the skirt but I can't imagine wearing tights in Houston....I would boil! It's always so hot and humid there.

I like your version much better too! Much more stylish versus garish. Don't misunderstand, I love colours very much but I love the muted look of your skirt.
