Skirts!!

I wear mostly only skirts and dresses, I make most of them and a lot of JoLee's too so I won't bore you with pictures of all of them but here's a couple of my favorites I made this week.


Do you remember this thrifted vintage sheet that I got for $2 and was still in the original package? Well...I made this Circle Skirt for JoLee out of it, isn't it cute?! The tutorial was on the blog MADE and I finally decided to try it out... EASY PEASY with her very clear directions and my serger!!! MADE is one of my far-o-rite blogs, she had all kinds of great free patterns and tuts!!

She loves how she can spin in it...
and feels just like a ballerina, however I can't get her to actually wear it because she's afraid of getting it dirty.

I made this one for myself, also from a thrifted vintage sheet, I just love the colors together and you wouldn't believe how soft it is!!
JoLee was my photographer...

Okay, just one more pic, a close up so you can see how pretty it is. I know I'm a dork (Brian remind me all the time) but that's ok, I love that the Lord blessed me with so many wonderful talents and I'm proud to show off His gifts in me!! Not to mention all the money I save!!

Alright I'll show you one more...

We were being silly, JoLee did a good job huh?

very cute skirts! I love projects that involve upcycling. I'm going to keep this in mind for the vintage sheets that I have that are too nice to be cut into strips to use for rag rugs and the like. A few months ago I bought a used serger which doesn't quite work and have been putting off getting serviced because of the cost, but if I can come up with some great projects like this one I might convince myself that the cost is worth it. Keep up the making!
