le bouton corduroy basic straight skirt
here's my new le bouton corduroy skirt. the fabric is so interesting because the green dye only saturated the top surface. so the white ground is revealed whenever i move. lisa shortened the length so i can ride my bicycle in it. there's a generous back foldover pleat, too, which lets me kick up my heels and dance (or run after a bus!). lisa works with two seamstresses now, and both the design and the final product are perfectly done.
i feel like i should wear more green, it's such a delightful color.
