Tulips Skirts VOL 4 – The final journey ! Todays look - " True Flower"!

Ok, you got it, Tulips skirts are on my mind this spring.
It’s because skirts are so flattering and girly that I cannot stop making them. They are easy to make and perfect if you need more options for your MMJ this summer. Trust me, separates go a long way.
