Denim Skirt

Hello once again!

I'm back, making a few updates and making some more clothing. I may also get around to restructuring old posts...
In this post you'll also see me using a new template of data to make sure I tell you everything relevant about the garment.
Here goes!

Garment Data:
- Type: skirt
- Date made: Actual skirt, don't know (2010?); trim, May 19-21, 2011
- Pattern: self drafted
- Fabric: Denim, cotton, blue
- Trim: DMC embroidery floss, cotton, periwinkle, #809, three part braid with 6 strands per part; lace, cotton?, off-white
- Time to finish: not certain
