    Oh wow! Glad you are a member too.
    Please send me a convo via Etsy, and I'll look back; can't exactly recall.
    And sure thing, about the Retro Clean. I was a little concerned about using it on that skirt, but I did so gingerly, with a light solution, I'm pretty sure that's how I did it. I should find that before picture; it was pretty dull and grubby when I found it.

    That skirt of yours was worth the wait! The colors are so happening for now.

    All righty; here is the before:

    I love barkcloth and this discussion is fabulous--love the links Linn shared and the photos of the skirts!

    I have two panels of Shaheen-signed barkcloth that I've been meaning to have framed and use as wall hangings--now I'm inspired to find them and actually get around to having it done!

    The only barkcloth item I have is this dress which I did not try on and is a little too small in the hips. It also has an almost thigh high slit on the side. I will probably sell it when I get around to it:

    I found it at a Show here in Hawaii and although I measured it - I don't think I would ever wear it - or could without some serious Spanx!
  4. Gorgeous dress, Linn! Yeah, I've never been able to pull off a sheath. lol
