a skirt for sunday





Can you tell I had a little time to myself this weekend??  Havn't seen these basement studio shots for a while huh.
I must have gotten through the pile of to do's for everyone else and found mine.
   First up: a paisley skirt redo. 
I found a oddly attractive Polly bled elastic waisted skirt at the thrift store a while back.  You know the type your aunts would wear in the summers high up on their real waists, billowing about hanging rite above the ankle?  (And she always had a stash of tissues in that hidden pocket. )
Sorry no before photo's,  I cut the entire waist off so I had a rectangle of fabric.  In haste I tried to put some shape in it by lopping off fabric on either end,  duh,  all I got was another awkward skirt .





FINE,  I'll measure & pin !














Added trim

















The worst mirror photo ever but I couldn't find another way,  darn antique mirrors.   So I'm off , in my new skirt, to volunteer at a local block-party,  hopefully looking more young mom than 80's aunt,  verdict is still out.
