I spied this handmade quilted skirt at Salvos last week. The fabric & detailing is AMAZING! It's just like a patchwork quilt, but in skirt form! It's thick & heavy like a real quilt too. It has lace, applique, embroidery & lots of different vintage fabric squares. It's really a piece of art. I really don't know whether I would wear it. I love it, but it is a full skirt, so I look very hippy (as in hips & thighs, not hippy cool like Vix!). I'm afraid I'll look like a walking doona. It might work if you played up it's fullness with a crinoline (but I don't own one of those yet!). At $8 I had to get it, & it is hanging on display on our bedroom wall. Mr P spied it in bed the other night, & when I showed it to him, even he was impressed with the amazing workmanship & gorgeous detailing. That's saying something when a man oohs & aahs over patchwork!
