Love your skirt, and glasses! It is always great to have a TNT pattern. I'm going to keep the lining idea in mind - helps with warmth too!

Your skirt looks great on you. I'm so happy you were able to find a TNT pattern. The lining saves you from having to wear a slip so it's well worth the extra work.

This skirt looks really excellent on you. I agree with you re: the new TNT skirt pattern! I love that fabric.
