Finally new stuff from me! Yeah. I bought this ugly white skirt from flea market ages ago. It has been lying around since then. Couple days ago I found it again and decided to make something better from it... this is how it turned out:


I'm in love! I've never done anything like this but I think I did it quite well (comparing to my sewing skills of course).


Here's a lace detail. I added there all the lace I found here Cheesy

Aaand here's what it was before:


 Huh hideous! There's our cat lurking behind me too. She's not hideous, though Grin (sorry about dark picture, my boyfriend doesn't really know how to use my camera.....)

So what do you think about my new summer skirt?

Hardly hideous before, but it looks like it yielded plenty of yardage for you to recycle, and it looks much better, much younger, and much fresher on you after the renovation.

Ok, I managed to make you a tutorial! Grin It must be the most horrible tutorial I've ever seen, so I'm truly sorry, but if anyone gets my point in any way I'll be happy. Sorry if my English is bad, I wasn't quite sure about every word there. But anyway. Here it is:

TUTORIAL HERE! (picture behind the link)

* with laces I mean stuff like these for example: http://www.germes-online.com/direct/dbimage/50311749/Cotton_Laces.jpg

Hope you like it Cheesy and thanks again for the nicest words ever!
