Crocheted skirts and a shawl

I seem to have worked my way through the skirt obsession. I am posting the results of my last few weeks of crocheting - the multi-colored skirt, a blue skirt, and a beaded purple skirt. The blue skirt is looong - ankle length - and flared at the end, in deference to Westerwitch's comments. Worn with my slouchy boots, I feel like I'm in the old West, with my long, flouncy, swirly skirt. All I need is a shawl to wear with it.





The skirts are for sale, or I will be glad to make the same patterns in other sizes. The purple skirt, the gray skirt that I posted earlier, and the multi-colored skirt are all size 8 - 10, tea length, and the blue skirt is a size 6 - 8, ankle length. Price is $65.00 postpaid.




I plan to take all of them to Colorado in November, but if interested in something, please let me know and I will get it to you. Shipping time from Lima is about 10 days.



I think the multi-colored skirt would look fabulous with a denim jacket and sandals!




And speaking of shawls, I also came up with a black crocheted shawl. It started out circular, but then I folded it and crocheted a shell edging on it. Shells - you'd think I could come up with a different stitch, but it seems like everything I do ends up in a shell edging. Also for sale, $55.00 postpaid.

Kathleen - those skirts are so pretty! Do you need to wear anything under them, or are they lined? Beautiful!

The skirt need something under them. I have a half slip that I use, flesh colored, but I think that a pair of leggings would work just fine, too.

Ooooh, yes I can see some leggings under one! They are gorgeous!! I would love one....if you ever find some extra time (and can make a pretty large one for this tall mama) please let me know. I would jump on that. :)
