A little embroidery….

can transform a boring skirt into something a bit special.


Take one 70’s stretchy skirt…


…add an old embroidery transfer…


…and play around with stitches you got from an old embroidery book.


It looks better on me than on the mannequin, but I never take photos of me if I can possibly help it! The stretchy synthetic fabric was the devil to embroider neatly and I should have used some stabilizing fabric to stop it puckering, but overall I think it’s pretty cute.

It is the same skirt as this one, just in a different colour….

…wait a minute! Unless my tagging system is rubbish (and to be honest it is a bit) I haven’t blogged the other skirt.

I just got an idea for another post :)
