For some reason I'm really lazy to take nice pictures and post here on craftster (and I don't really like double-posting, since I already put most of my stuff on my blog...). But anyway, I can't sleep right now and I have a skirt that I just recently made (and am proud of).

I used an old denim fabric mum gave me, some lining I found in my collection, the same goes for the lace. And I stole my mum's cool sewing machine for the embroidered bottom. Honestly, I thought the embroidery would kill me. Even though the machine did 99% of the work for me, I still had to keep the fabric even and cutting the little curves on the very bottom made my hands ache. I wore it once to a meet-up, but then I realized I messed up the zipper a bit and right now it sits in a drawer, waiting for me to re-sew it. I was originally inspired by a Liz Lisa skirt, but the outcome is totally different  Grin.




I'm just finishing another skirt (have you noticed how difficult it is to BUY a nice skirt at a regular shop? I can't get any I'd like!), so hopefully I'll post it soon...

That's so cute! The embroidery does look like it was a pain, but it totally makes the skirt.  I wouldn't have ever guessed that was denim if you hadn't said so.
Great job!

Oh, I'm in love with this skirt!  The embroidery is the perfect hint of detail there.  <3

Ooh yay for decorative stitching! The stitches you chose are all very pretty, and really add to the look of the skirt Smiley

I like it! Denim and lace look so good together and the embroidery makes it all the better!

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

That embroidery is beautiful! The color scheme and lace reminds me of something Alice in Wonderland would wear. I love it. I'd love to see a picture with you wearing it!
