before and after 3This 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.
