Back last year the lovely Angie from Norwegian Wood made me a new cage skirt, since all my others no longer fitted me. She doesn't make clothing any more so I was thrilled when she created this black linen version just for me. As a piece, these cage skirts are unbelievably versatile. They just seem to work over absolutely everything. And naturally, it won't be last you see of this one.
Since it's really pretty warm here in Scotland, I kept the rest of the outfit loose and light. I'm still struggling to dress for summer since we never really get a proper summer in Scotland so I don't really have a the wardrobe to deal with it. I'm also learning to be comfortable baring skin again, which I haven't done for about 5 years, but I'm working hard to accept the changes dance has forced upon me such as a thicker waist and built up trapezius muscles. A very strong body is a good body however, even if that means sacrificing aesthetics.
