Skirting around in May

It's like clockwork... Every May I want to sew myself new skirts and dresses. Remember the year I made all those dresses for my trip to Italy? No big travel plans this year, but somehow it feels more spring/summer/vacation-y to make myself some new skirts.
This one has been on my to-do list in my mind for a while... I'm so happy I made it... The sheer volume of the yellows is enough to make me happy and the trim is more of my friend Yolanda's fun herringbone that she sent me... (same as the binding for that last quilt)
The shirt, you ask? I went to the Velvet brand sample sale yesterday and scored some more of my favorite tops. These are the ones that look awesome with my Libby Dibby skirts (and pretty much everything else you can think of)
Um, yeah, I do know they don't match. In my world they do... As my friend, Tifanie said this week... Now that she's 30 (younger than me!), the desire to be matchy matchy doesn't exist anymore. I think I'm a bit more than 5 years into that discovery. Guess what? I'm totally on the road to being one of those 80 year old ladies with red and purple hats. In the meantime, I'm loving this yellow and coral combo.
