This toile (pronounced "twa") print skirt is my first handmade circle skirt and I'm really pleased with it. (Spanish translation equivalent: It pleases me. Those 3 years of Spanish are being put to good use, you see.) Toile print basically means colonial people dancing around trees and serenading sheep with bagpipes (if you look closely, you will see just that). Toile is usually seen on curtains or pillows BUT I HAD BETTER PLANS. Also I'm intrigued by the style of the 1700s, Marie Antoinette-esque. (you could even say I have a fetish for neck ruffles ;D). I will be posting some Baroque-esque things soon too! What do you think of it? What would go well with it? Have you ever sewn at all? Would you like to? Comment!

I had so much making this skirt, really. After I cut out the hole I decided it was a time-traveling porthole to the days of our dapper colonial men and women.

Remember when I said I had so much fun with this skirt fabric? Okay, okay, okay, this picture here is a nod (more like a full body jerk) to that Spongebob episode where Spongebob and Patrick are hanging with this surfer guy and they keep striking the above pose and shout, "THE POWER WITHIN." Anyone remember this? If you are out there, please make yourself known for I must commend you and maybe we should go get ice cream later.
