I am currently drinking some red wine while listening to Madonna - it is Saturday night after all - but I hope I'll still be able do a coherent post about my new skirt!
This is a version of the original Maud skirt, and it's basically an a-line skirt with a drawstring/elastic combo that is super comfortable and very forgiving to wear. I love wearing skirts, but I can't stand when they are tight at the waist. Or they keep rising up when you wear them, so suddenly the waist is under your bust, which is another peeve of mine. Not to mention the twisting, when the back slit ends up in the front! Maybe it is just me who has this issues, but finding skirts that fits is really hard for me. That is why I am huge fan of knit skirts with an elastic waist. I can wear them low slung or high up, depending on my mood or how my body behaves that day.
When I bought the fabric I had intended to center the print, but while it looked great on the dress form, it was a bit overpowering in reality, so after a lot of draping experiments I settled on this asymmetric alignment which is really flattering.
