I've recently made some new things. Thought I'd post the bunch! Smiley

This skirt I made a while ago and just added the bird applique. It gives it more interest.

This one was made back a few months ago and needed something. So I added some flowers along the ruffled area.

I made this one out of a vintage pillowcase to which I added the rickrack and applique flower trim. Very pink!

This top has a fruity yoke in the front and a fruity watermelon at the hemline.

This skirt has a different color front/back so you can wear it however you feel like. One side has a funky mountain applique and the back is solid charcoal with a sun/flower applique near the hem.

Hope you like them. Sorry for the pic overload!! I'd love your feedback!!

THat bird skirt is sooo cool. IO love the pleats at the bottom. looks like something at a boutique that would sell for 150-200$.Aweome!

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...

Lovely work. The first two really caught my eye. The print on the second one I found unexpected for a skirt but wow what a good choice. The colors are great and the proportion of the ruffle height to the main skirt length is perfect.

I also really like the small touches you have added on everything. It is a good reminder that when one has so much freedom when embellishing handmade clothing (or I suppose purchased clothing too). Or a least a good reminder to me to just go for it now and again and try to add a little art to something.  Smiley

What type of fabric is the first skirt? It looks really soft and it is neat how the striped fabric at the bottom sort of reads like fine pleats...wait or are those accordian pleats?

While everything in your new collection is wonderful, I have to say the ruffled skirt and the pink skirt are my faves!

I really like your style of clothing.  Did you use patterns for them? I especially love the first and second skirts.  Great work!

Great pics! I just had to reply...The pink pillowcase skirt... I just got two of these EXACT same ones at a local Flea Market. How cool! I planned on using one for a skirt but I thought I would use the solid band, as the bottom. So it's cool to see another take on the same pillowcase Smiley

Hoot Hoot!
