Working on the Blythe Runway Challenge - AA skirt

Last night I worked on a prototype for the skirt for the outfit I'm making for this month's Blythe Runway Challenge. If you'll recall, I'm re-interpreting the outfit for the Blythe "Aztec Arrival Inspired." Here is the sketch I did:

BRC - Preliminary Drawing, Aztec Arrival

It's a separate wraparound skirt and top, not a one piece.

I cut it out in a test fabric from a human pattern that just happened to print at the perfect size:

Tonight, I'll cut out the real McCoy, and move onto the shirt. I'm going to look for trim at lunch today.
