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 !
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.
