New skirt!

Very simple pattern; circular skirt on a formed waistband (from McCall's 3637, now out of print). The thing that gives it impact is that the fabric is striped, and I've arranged the stripes so they run vertically at the centre front and back, and horizontally at the side seams:

I can't take credit for this idea; it was inspired by a skirt from Anthropologie (which seems not to be produced any more). Christened the 'orchid skirt', as the colours remind me of an orchid I bought two weeks ago. I'm pleased with it, despite the fact that I usually don't wear knee-length skirts. Or pink. Or stripes.
