for the love of citrus… skirt

A revisiting of a citrus skirt I made a few years back. I pulled this out of the closet this past weekend and paid homage to the citrusy delights of grapefruit, oranges, lemons and limes- throwing caution by the wayside and letting beloved fruits take center stage in my fashion world.

Self portraits are always shocking, “really, that’s me? I really have had a lot to eat this past winter…” Hello, a much needed wake up call.

The citrus skirt is a stretchy silver denim I found on a sale rack. The fruit is made from tulle, cotton fabrics and different colors of felt. The yellow rick rack at the bottom is of the thin velvety variety.

The view of the citrus skirt from the other side, I couldn’t stand another picture of myself. Anyway, it looks much better on Linda, the dress form.

    How fun is that? I must find some of that silver denim and make something! (Can’t pull off a skirt like you, but I’m sure I can think of something….)
