|Here's the envelope. I went for what they call "regular" length|
|This shot shows the end of the waist band going through the seam and to the front to button. I think it's the shadow from the curtain that's giving the op-art look to the fabric. Really it's your basic solid twill.|

I'm planning to bring another skirt, a couple dresses for casino wear, probably a pair of trousers, and a gazillion knit tops. I just finished a woven top from some fabric that Melody picked out for me - it's wilder than I would normally go for but Melody has never steered me wrong. She said it would be a good conversation-starter on our trip.
Including this skirt, I'm two for five on my Vintage Sewing Pattern Pledge. I have a couple more items in the pipeline, but they'll probably have to wait until I've driven to Chicago and back.
