The Day of the Dead Party Skirt!

So it was another late night last night when I couldn't put my project down, once again. For my second project of the weekend I made this day of the dead party skirt!

For the detailing on the waistband, I sewed some silk flowers onto lapel pins so they can be removed for washing, and to tie in the colors and flowers from the hem fabric:

I love everything about this skirt, except that it is a little billowy on my frame. But I don't really have any skirts that are like it, so maybe its not so bad to have a tea-length big billowing skirt in my wardrobe. I'm on the fence, what do you think? Should I take it down a notch? Tell me your thoughts!

P.s. I entered this skirt in the fall party time competition over at Sew Retro! So far, people are liking it!
