When voile and double gauze meet

I found some fun nani IRO at a lqs and splurged on 5/8 yard, hoping to make a skirt. I mistakenly thought that the fabric was 54" wide, when in fact it was 45". That changed my plans a bit, and sent me to another lqs in search of some voile. I loosely followed the Flirting the Issue skirt pattern (an Anna Maria Horner freebie!), and here's how it turned out:
At first I was unhappy with the way the skirt poofs a bit where the voile and double gauze meet. Then I decided to try wearing the skirt at my natural waist, and it seemed to work! I do wish I had the option of wearing the skirt lower for a more casual look, but a little bit of modern trend is just what my closet needed!

Cute skirt! I like it high-waisted! And if you really want it longer, you can just have a top untucked over it.

In other news, I am envious of your hydrangea.
