Full Circle Skirt : Helliwell Bluffs

Full Circle Skirt : Helliwell Bluffs

I’m currently traveling in New York, so these pics are actually of a project from last summer that I never got a chance to share on the blog!  I experimented with working with some blankets/tablecloths from India last year, and this was one of the projects.  This blanket already had a circle medallion design on it, so I simply cut around it, cut a hole in the middle, and cut straight from the edge to the center to make this wrap design. I attached a waistband wth ties to fasten the skirt on, and hemmed the bottom to finish! It is very comfortable, albeit a bit heavy.  It doubles as a blanket should you ever need to sit down, though!

These amazing photos were taken at Helliwell park on Hornby Island here in BC.  My family goes to Hornby every summer and we never miss taking a walk on these bluffs. They are particularly gorgeous at sunset when the wheat is lit up like gold and the sky is a cool blue.

Once the final rays of the sun disappeared over behind the trees, we continued our walk along the bluffs at twilight and I snapped some shots of the landscape.  It’s amazing to get to experience such beauty with almost no one else around!  Until next year, Helliwell <3.

What a wonderful skirt — I love a wrap circle skirt! Also, your hair looks especially lovely at that shorter length 🙂
Hope you’re having fun in NY!

Beautiful Pictures!! Beautiful skirt!

Beautiful skirt! The fabric design is perfect for it. I also love the dual purpose 😉
Gorgeous scenery!! Just stunning.

What a beautiful place to visit. I had a dress with a circle skirt when I was a child and whenever I wore it I would just twirl and twirl and twirl. It looks like it’s still fun!

Perfect outfit for Hornby Island. Thanks for sharing beautiful pics of one of my favourite spots in the world.

I’ve never been to Helliwell park on Hornby! I live in Victoria so we will definitely have to remedy that! Beautiful skirt and photos WOW. Love your post 🙂

Wow your photos are gorgeous!! And so is your skirt – I bet you wore it a ton this summer!!
