I’m sure I’ve mentioned that we go to A LOT of weddings. 2015 is no exception. Our friends got married at the end of June in the Okanagan, on what turned out to be a record-breaking heat wave! Luckily I wore my Megan Nielsen Cascade skirt to help beat the heat.
I used a lightweight cotton gauze fabric that I purchased online from Fabric.com and then used my friend’s mother-in-law’s US shipping address to take advantage of the free shipping. She’s pretty much my fabric mule, hahaha.
I was inspired by the pattern designer herself by some of her additional variation designs. Since the cotton gauze was so lightweight, the skirt needed to be lined. So I decided to make a 2-layer skirt in different lengths.
I love how it turned out. The skirt can easily be dressed up or down. I think this would be a great outfit for a summer BBQ or a day out with my family. The design of the skirt lets the fabric hang in a really beautiful way, and really fans out nicely when I twirl around.
As a girl-mom, I definitely do a lot of twirling! And jumping!
Happy Tuesday everyone!
