okay, so they're not hippie skirts anymore, but since i just used the material, i decided against recon forum. so i bought two hippie skirts at a thrift store a million years ago because i thought they were fantastic to hang out in in the country in the hot summer. but i've grown up since then, and thought they needed a little chic-ing up.

first, they both got turned into full length maxi dresses, which i ended up decided wasn't much of an improvement, though i love that kind of dress, wasn't workin with my sandals. anyhoo.

this one got turned into a shirt-


ack, erlack Angry they're blurring. bah. we'll work it.

back, with a view of my favourite jeans, second hand is best kind

hmmm, we have an mia close up of buttons down the back. because they are there, people, and they were a pain in the butt. hand sewing is more reliable than my machine, but oy vay, the time consumption.

second skirt to dress ended up being shortened, not to shirt, but to a more whimsical knee length, and if i want it to be a shirt, i just tie it up in a knot at my waist, looks fine.

thanks for lookin', these were my very first projects in the clothing department, did them a while ago, and i am pretty please with how they went. love that material, rayon-type, easiest i've ever worked with, personally.

thanks for regardez-vous-ing

xxx ooo
