This is out of my normal color range, but the combo of handwriting and music notation was too much to resist. The question remains though, if I sell it, or keep it for myself. I LOVE how full it is and the swoosh. The skirt is built in three panels, with the front two panels set to be gathered up with ribbons to show an under petticoat. There are grommets hidden under the lighter ruffle and ribbons set into the seams. Wheee! I am very please with the result!

Any tips to share?
It is clothes like this that are square dance, but seemingly lolita too:
