big love.

Now that's a big skirt.


with lots of gathers.


and a vintage metal zip,


that has to be lapped because its not quite the right shade of green.

  4. OK, that picture actually made me... "grunt" is the best word I can come up with. Like, I saw that HUMONGOUS FLIPPIN' SKIRT and "Huh!" was the sound I spontaneously made.

    That is one HUMONGOUS FLIPPIN' SKIRT.

    Neato.

    My word verification is "trurt". This is when you make a skirt and it comes out really really sh*tty. It's a "trurt". (Which is in no way a comment on the above skirt, btw. Your HUMONGOUS FLIPPIN' SKIRT is not a trurt.)
