These were two of the first things I made, like in February or March or something. Now, seeing as I got my hands on my grandmother's digital camera (yays!), it's time to put them up.
This first skirt is a normal jeans to skirt deal, except that I replaced the "triangles" with a cool oriental style fabric instead of the normal denim. The jeans were ripped to pieces, also, so I patched them with the same color, and made the back longer than the front, I think it's called a "princess" hemline or something.

This second one used to be an awful high waisted 80's skirt, (sorry, no before pics), so I chopped the top off (to the bottom of the zipper), added two hooks and eyes (not the best way, I know) and a pretty rainbow vareigated ribbon for the waistband. I also embroidered a quote from Baudelaire (whoever that is) in green, "I want meadows red in tone and trees painted in blue. Nature has no imagination."

Those are awesome! I like how on the first one you have that red fabric peeking through the holes, too cool.

People who take time to be alone usually have depth, originality, and quiet reserve.

He's missing his liver. That's how some kids react to the cafeteria food. The lucky ones.
