Floral skirt

With the same fabric as this dress, I made a skirt. I think I like the skirt better than the dress, since it is more versatile. I can think of a lot of variation with leggings, tights, slouchy tops or sweaters... I have a thing of floral fabrics. I know the fashion world this season is all about studs, 80's, Goth etc, but I love romantic floral prints.
No pattern is used. The skirt part is three rectangles, and I pleated instead of gathering the fabric, because of the thickness of the fabric. Then I added a thick waistband and an exposed zipper. I like adding waist band this fall/winter, to make it a high-waisted look. Also I added two pockets on the side! I love pockets!
Tanktop: Unknown, Skirt: Handmade by me, Tights: Unknown, Booties: Payless, Jacket: thrifted Uniqlo.

It has been raining for a week now since the typhoon was coming. Last night, I got up in the middle of the night because of the sound of rain - it was pouring. I miss the sunny weather already.
