I decided to go with the stones and I'm so glad I did. It's a great balance for the skirt. I was attracted to this pattern because of the sleeve slits. The person at JoAnn's tried to convince me that the black fabric is matte jersey...it isn't. Matte jersey is a single knit. This fabric is a double knit--a lightweight one but just the same a double knit.
I went totally Goth with my nail polish, accessories, and lipstick. Why did I even have this color lipstick? The more I look at it the more I like it!
