these past three weeks have been utter hell - SACs and Essays and Exams - it's the end of the semester in winter in Australia and I needed a little cheering up  Wink

SO! I made this happy little skirt with the Karen Walker fabric I bought from NZ like a year ago (because I was so scared of using it and screwing something up  Grin)

It's a ruched babydoll top that I cut the straps off of - and made the hem all even around
and then I cut out one of the ponies from the KW fabric, and embroidered it on!  Cheesy

lying flat

pretty plain and simple but it does the trick to cure rainy-day-Year 10-induced-blues!

i love it! that fabric must be amazinggg and i love the colors. i totally know the feeling of not wanting to use wonderful fabric because of not wanting to screw it up. that's the bad thing about vintage fabric. Smiley
