Hello, all!
Finally, pictures of my current favourite skirt to wear.

(EDIT : Seriously, what is up with Blogger pictures at the moment? They upload fine and all, and then they look all crappy and pixelly on the blog. Been going on since at least April. I'm resorting to Flickr for now, but that is not the most practical solution IMO.)

The flowery fabric is a Lecien lawn print; the bottom ruffle is linen and I love the weight and body that the stiffer linen adds to the skirt, as the lawn by contrast is thin and airy.

If you want your own ruffle skirt, I wrote a tutorial a few years back.
I had a matching hat back then as well. :)

Bonjour à tou-te-s !
Voici des photos de la jupe qui est devenue ma chouchoute pour cet été.

L'imprimé à fleur est un linon de coton de chez Lecien. Le volant du bas, carmin, est en lin, et sa rigidité ajoute une bonne tenue au linon léger et fin.

Si vous voulez vous faire un jupon pour l'été, j'ai écrit un pas-à-pas (en anglais, mais avec schéma) il y a quelques années.
D'ailleurs à l'époque j'avais déjà un chapeau assorti à la jupe. :)

The fabrics are lovely together and perfect for the skirt. Beautiful surroundings too.

That skirt is so pretty Isabelle! I love the contrast panel at the bottom. I'm not surprised it's your current favourite :)

What a lovely skirt! Such a good idea to combine the fabric that way--lawn for cool and comfort at the top and linen for weight at the bottom.

This is very pretty for summer, Isabelle! I love the contrast-colored ruffle at the bottom hem. And lovely outdoor photo-shoot. :o) Happy Summer Days, my friend ((HUGS))
