You know how sometimes you see something, and you kind of want it, but you decide you don’t *need* it, and then you start thinking about it more and more and kicking yourself for not getting it? Well, thank goodness for online shopping! Kinokuniya saved me from this torture and delivered this sassy little skirt book to my doorstep:
It’s called Skirt a la Carte and complements my Pretty Skirt book (the one Alison sent me last year) very nicely. Here are a couple more skirts from the book:
Now I need some advice. I think I’m going to make a skirt with the spirograph fabric I got the other day. I might make the skirt on the cover of Skirt a la Carte, but I am also attracted to this style from the Pretty Skirt book:
The skirts have a yoke and then some gathering or soft pleating. The thing is, I am short, and my legs are shorter. Is this style going to accentuate that fact and make me look like a big box? Sigh, I want to make one of every design!
Oh, and in case you’re curious, the ISBN for Skirt a la Carte is 4-579-11000-5 and for Pretty Skirt it’s 4-579-10949-X.
