Hi everyone this is my first post so i really hope im doing it right ... so bear with me I made this skrit using some pin stripe material and a rebel flag bandana  The  safety pins are non functional i just thought they added a little flavor       
                                                       This is anothe one i made using individual scraps of different jean and it was all hand sewn because it was before i got my machine for christmas 

here is a close up ... i also used the the waist band from an old pair of jeans.

and here is the back  .. thank you for looking ,please let me know what you think

I have been planning to make a union jack skirt for quite some time but never really put the effort into getting it done. Now you've inspired me to do it....your skirt is fab!

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

All of your stuff is pretty great!!  I love it when standard clothing is made into something a bit more unconventional!!

I am going to drag out my flag skirt that I almost got arrested for (oh wait, that was a long time ago so my big butt won't fit it--I'll just look at yours!)

Keep on posting--you are doing fabulous things!!

The confederate flag freaks me out a bit, but I like the concept of the first skirt. I love the patchwork one; it must have taken you a long time and to handsew through denim? That takes a lot of patience.

i heart the denim one- it reminds me of those crazy expensive madras patchwork skirts that EVERYONE(except me) has from american eagle or whatever- i like your skirt alot better though- its cute and i can't believe you sewwed it all by hand-it looks great! Grin

Look at me, I'm on TV, it makes up for the shortcomings of being poor. Now I'm in a million pieces picked up for deliberation by the people listening at home, by the people watching on the telly...
