SWAP: Stone skirt

I traced the pattern for this skirt from the skirt section of a RTW dress which is long gone.
It is very economical with fabric so was ideal for using up a remnant of stretch wool in a neutral stone colour.
The darker patches are water from where I was rather liberal with the water spray bottle when pressing, I'll take another photo when its dry.
The two animal print tops, duck egg print tops and neutral skirts make quite a nice little set for Spring, though I suppose I need some toppers.

lovely skirt. Excellent neutral for any season and looks to be a good shape to work with multiple top styles.

I'm interested to see how these look on you--very different from your other SWAPs in terms of colors and prints, but still very nice.

JuliaRu I am wondering that too. I've worn three of the tops already but with darker coloured trousers and coloured layers.

what did you think? I really think the grouping looks kind of sophisticated (especially the darker tops).

I love it. It's the kind of skirt that you can really easily dress up or down. I really should sew with more solids... I just get distracted by all the pretty patterns lol
