Greetings Craftsters!

My best friend graduated college a few days ago, and she had a grad party. Back story is she loves the color orange with such a passion that her entire life looks like orange exploded everywhere. As an ode to the Queen of the Party, I had to find some new orange to wear. I found this “interesting” thing for $10 at Savers. Its polyester, it has shoulder pads, and its orange!

Before:


After:


Two handmade skirts. After I made the yellow and purple skirt I posted on here recently, I realized that I could make a few more to add some color into my wardrobe. I think they've turned out great! The first one was for a Holiday party and the second just for fun.

oh what a cute outfit!  Way better than the original "thing"! Grin

Love the whole look you put together--your necklace pops against the orange!

Lovely skirts--and complete outfits!

I love it and totally wish for your skill at seeing what something can be - and then getting it there!  Both skirts are really cute!

I think "interesting" as a word to describe the before dress is a little generous Smiley. But WOW you really turned it around. Your recon looks so great. The color is really nice on you too and the turquoise necklace adds the perfect touch.

Thanks for sharing!

I love the orange dress recon. You took it from frumpy to fabulous! All of your new skirts look beautiful on you!

Wow, such a difference with the first dress! It looked so frumpy before, and so gorgeous after!

I love your style. I'm quite jealous. I've always wanted to be the kind of girl who looked good in skirts, but I just don't think I am. I don't even own one.  Undecided
