Sewing Update: Return of the Empire

I made this high-waisted skirt last week and am not sure yet if I'll be selling it or keeping it for myself (always a tough decision). The midriff is made out of burgundy velvet (appears red in photo) with flower appliqué cut from an upholstery fabric remnant. The gathered skirt is made from the remainder cut of an Indian block print tapestry that I used to make my shower curtain.
