I think this skirt has several characteristics that I'll have to keep in mind when I choose projects in the future.
1) It's multi-seasonal.
This skirt's sunny yellow colour means I tend to gravitate towards it more for daytime summer wear. But, add some tights, boots, and a long-sleeve shirt and it's equally appropriate for a night out to a movie or for a beer in the fall or winter.

2) It's the perfect mix of casual and dressy.
I love making dresses, but I find that there are limited occasions to wear them out. Plus, they're not as flexible as a skirt (which can look very different depending on whether you add tights/accessories and what shirt you wear with it). I always feel comfortable and cute without feeling overdressed.

This skirt has withstood hundreds of wears and washes. I was really careful in the construction of this skirt, which has allowed it to stand up to lots and lots of use.

4) It's both trendy and classic.
This skirt has a traditional shape, but the colour sets it apart. I have never, ever seen anything like it in stores, but always get compliments on it.
