One of my sewing dreams is to make a black circle skirt covered with layers of gazillions of bias strips. If the effect is half as awesome as this I will be thrilled.

Olive - brown skirt architectural construction

Architectural construction of the skirt is very eye catching. Its clean geometrical lines could be a focal point of every outfit. Very unusual design, fitted close to the body in the upper part and fuller below the knees. Geometrical inserts give a fullness to the skirt and ties from straps of the same fabric hold the folds in place.
