This color blocked skirt that Portia from Miss P made is pure gorgeousness! The pieced panels of beaded chiffon with panels of solid fabric. The result is a skirt that dress but modern, sleek but detailed. The beaded fabric came from a rather dated fancy dress. She shares a tutorial showing how she was able to cut the beaded chiffon into panels without losing the beads, and then how she sewed it into a skirt. The tutorial is part of her series, The Refashioners. Go to Miss P for the tute.
