Skirt Love

I have fallen in love with the skirts of Anna Konya.  She has been designing her gorgeous gypsy-inspired clothing since the '60's and they have become real collectors items in the States.
They're made up of metres and metres of (mostly) cotton fabric and the colours are "bent" with  metres and metres of ribbon.  The waist is elasticised and there are apparently voluminous pockets hidden in the folds, so they are practical pieces that are meant to be worn every day.
There are gyspy shirts to match, too.
With the US Dollar so low at the moment, it's all very tempting, but I think I will have to wait and make a special birthday gift request!

illy & Mojo were doing a bit of "formation sleeping" in front of the fire tonight.  Purrfect!
