Sweet Sarah Skirt

I've had this made for awhile, but I had to go to the hospital for about a week, and how craftster looks on my phone is quite limited - it takes out the pics in the topics... and so I couldn't post this...

This skirts is completely covered in frills and bits of vintage lace.

I even used a vintage garter and some old happy face eyelet.

I am VERY pleased with how this skirt came out and will be making more maybe ombre... and maybe different colors.. hmmm...

as always I leave raw edges and it's sewn on top of vintage lingerie... in this case a vintage slip.

That's very summery and I'm sure it took a while. My mother said she has a bag of clothes, including slips from my gramma and I may do something similar, but maybe shorter. Does it have enough stretch where you sewed the layers around the hips?

I stretched the elastic and used a zigzag stitch. It definitely remained stretchy

it is better to destroy, than to create what is meaningless.
