My dreams of becoming a princess are slowly coming true...

If this skirt is any indication, anyway. I almost wore it with a tiara for a lazy Halloween costume, but in the end, was too lazy for even that. 

[My face looked dumb in all of these pictures. Grateful for the crop function!]

This was item #12 on my fourth-quarter sewing list. I'm making pretty good progress on it already! This skirt has been on my to-sew list for 2-3 years (I bought the tulle one Black Friday, but I can't remember exactly how long ago it was). I'm glad to finally have it done, even if I'm not quite sure if it's my style. 

As you can see, it's VERY poofy. I wore it to work one day (we dress very casually at my office), and I felt very self-conscious. I'm not sure if I just to need to own it, or if it really does look ridiculous. (My mom, who took these pictures, thought it was kind of silly until I pointed out all of the similar versions in stores and magazines). 

It's hard to see the lining in most of these pictures (which is kind of the point), but it ended up being much more of a form-fitting pencil skirt than a circle skirt that matched the layers. I think I'm pretty okay with that, though. Anyway. I think I'll give it another chance and see how I feel! What do you think? Would you try the tulle trend?
