I fell in love with this fabric when I was walking through the bridal fabrics of my local JoAnn store. The ombre look of the tulle was so unique, that I circled back around after I found what I needed and had some cut; they had this version, and a blue/purple combination.
I didn't really have anything specific in mind, I just knew I always wanted to make a long tulle skirt. As it turned out, I offered to make a skirt for my daughter to wear for a shoot to celebrate the five year anniversary of her photography business.

We decided since we would be in Oregon during the time of her anniversary that we should take advantage of the unique scenery. These shots were taken up at Crater Lake National Park.  If you are unfamiliar with the park, there is some great history to the park, including the depth of the lake.

When we first stopped and trekked up to the lookout, the view was absolutely breathtaking.  In fact, it looked fake!  Like the backdrop of a movie soundstage.  This is definitely a must see if you're in the area. We didn't have much time that day to explore, since it was a 90 minute drive one-way from where we were staying in Sunriver, so it would be fun to return some day to spend more time in the park itself.

We stopped at several lookouts along the way, but barely scratched the surface of the 33 mile drive around the rim of the crater.   Not to mention the many hikes that can be taken, including at least one that goes down to the lake itself.
As for the skirt, it is two pieces.  The underskirt is made of a matching fuschia polyester lining fabric with tailored waistband and center back zipper.  The tulle skirt ties on over the skirt and finishes with a bow at the back.   I pictured a crop top to complete the look, and we were able to find just the right one online!  Happy Anniversary look beautiful and I'm so proud of you!
