Rob Ryan fabric kit, cursed be the day I saw ye


Because now I want this skirt SO BAD. You know how bad, don't you? That awful burny, tingly sensation you get in your chest while your pupils dilate and your brain drones, "Must have, MUST HAVE!" (the last time I felt this way, by the way, I was 7 years old and staring at an E.T. t-shirt) That's right people, I got it bad.


{Rather gorgeous close-ups: here and here and blogged here.}


But just look at that price - £46.00? That's $89.34 in US dollars! (And I'm sure international shipping is no picnic, either.) And it's a kit, which means I'd have to sew the skirt myself. Sheesh. I still want it. Oh, you lucky UK-ers, you. You get all the good stuff. :)

Thanks a lot, Flor...now I want it! It really is great :)

Wow... I want it, too! Of course, it doesn't say a darn thing about sizes. And I wouldn't say it's that expensive. You could easily pay that for a 'designer' skirt. Of course, you have to put this one together yourself. ;-)

Oh wow! I love it. The fabric is so dark but fun at the same time.

What a great skirt! I can see why you want it so bad. It is so different and unique. And I love black and white, you can't go wrong with black and white! Good luck!

It is beautiful! :)

By the way, your story about being your sister's bridesmaid was so touching. It's pretty amazing just looking at the picture and thinking one thing, and then knowing the story behind it (about how sad you were). But I'm glad that you guys are still close! :)

This post took the words right out of my mouth. I thought the same exact thoughts the moment I saw that cursed kit! Damn you Rob Ryan!!!

Olga said...

Yikes! I saw your pix on Facebook and admired the designs, but now you tell me it's on fabric that can be had, and worn.... You should have it Flor, it is perfect for you.
