Skirt and give away

Today I was working on this skirt. Because of the hot weather I feel like wearing a skirt and when I jumped into my closet I found no skirt. Nope, I'm not really a skirty girl. Anyhow, I dove into my fabricstash and found a piece of lovely cotton I found thrifting once. It's Ikea and it was never used. Because I'm Dutch I love the fact that I now have a skirt (well almost) for 50 eurocents.
It's almost finished, it just needs a seam and a waistband. And I think it needs something else too, somehow I'm not quite happy about it, but I'm not sure what it is.... any ideas?

O, and while I was sewing I also made this:

It's a bunny pincushion made from hemp and filled with wool sweater remnants and I'm giving it away, because I now have 100 blogfollowers. Thanks! If you LIKE / WANT / NEED this pincushion, please let me know WHY. I'll pick a winner in about a week.
I will soon list pincushions in my shop too. They are inspired by the drawings I made for the mobiles in my shop. Here's a sneak preview.'
