I've got to stop making skirts that have monumental amounts of hand sewing detail. The base of the skirt took me about 2 hours to make. The pinwheel button flower detail on the other hand took me about 3 1/2 hours to sew on.
As well as the skirt, I also made the belt I wore today. You can't see it very well in the pictures, but in the center of each flower are 3 freshwater pearls and 3 green stones.
I spent today rehearsing at Tim's with the rest of Vanishing Shapes for some upcoming gigs we have. I'm really enjoying all the work we've been getting, and even though I'm exhausted from it, and left with very little free time, I'm enjoying it so much!
