The pattern—or, more accurately, lettering—around the hem is, of course, the inscription on the Ring.
And yes, these photos were taken outside, in late September, in eighty-something degree weather; so far, fall has been nearly indistinguishable from summer. The view is still really nice as well (although I’m only in this house, with its vistas and swimming pool, as a guest).
A final closeup of the hem:
In any case, I’m really happy with the skirt. What do you think?
