Week #8

This week we gave new life to two jumpers that Em out grew. The fabric was so much fun we couldn't toss them ~ so here is how they will spend the next chapter in their lives...


This little ruched flower is pretty quick to work up -
it looks much more
complex than it really is,
I made a smaller one for her hair.
Emily wanted to
add the netting on the underskirt and
I think it is a great little touch!
She looked fantastic in her new skirt.

This next one is a zinger.
I will call it the collage skirt or
"eat your heart out Anthropologie"
It looks a little more hip in real life.
It was just a kick in the pants to do.
She wore it with a red sweater today
and it was amazing!

So ... anybody else out there
using it up
wearing it out
making it do
or doing without?

or are you just buying more stuff??

The skirts turned out so cute! I can't wait to see them in person.
I also LOVE the beading. I think that the spring dangley one is adorable!
I just may have to make a copy cat :)
We love you guys! Can't wait to see you this week.
