I do like the skirt but it is too short for me.

I do not like advertising on my clothes. I am of the opinion that I do not need to advertise your brands without compensation from you and you probably could not afford me.

Beachlion pictures would be nice when you decide to make the skirt!! :D

I will not tolerate visible "branding" on my attire, full stop. That's just plain tacky. The same goes for Corporate-issue tee-shirts and the like.

I, however, am more than happy to recommend suppliers who have done well by me over time and who have good products.

But, do not expect me to be a moving bill-board.

Something different. Needs a few corrugations ironed out.
I am not sure where this road goes - I don't know whether it is a front or back view.

Have you noticed where the vanishing point is located?
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

With the female skirt wearer it would not make a difference -
it would be a clear shot through the unobstructed crotch -
AND I am not going any further with this -
It might spoil Christmas - New Years and then some more - - -

But certainly interesting in the Vanishing Point concept as I
always thought of that with railroad tracks - - -
Anyone been railroaded in a skirt ?
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !

That depends on your definition of being "railroaded"...

A skirt that I find appealing; great colour combination, short enough, elastic waist and pockets. I will have to contact seller to find out what the material is. Viscose or rayon OK but polyester a deal breaker.

One for Beachlion :) Quite a nice skirt actually, just my style. A pity about the lettering on it - not so much what it says, I object to any writing on garments.

It took some time and it required more engineering than anticipated. To get the pleats right I had to make paper models. It is not an exact copy, the front and back are more or less identical with my version. It is certainly light and flowy. I used quite thin fabric.

The pictures are still far below my usual standard because of the white background. I have to find a better spot.

I am so impressed with you sewing skills. I think that it is an improvement using the lighter material, especially with the pleats. It does not have belt loops but they are only needed if the waist is a bit large and obviously you would make it to fit perfectly. I wear some skirts with belt loops but no belt if they fit well.
Fancy being able to make a skirt based on a photo!

From the picture I could scale the relations between the various parts. Then I had to scale it up to my size. The whole skirt is a part of a circle and I have done that before.

With wind force BF3 and higher, I have to be very careful. ;)
