the title pretty much sums it up, kiddos!
i was inspired by this idea.
and thus i went to this beloved place:
and thus i spent $4 on an old lady skirt,
had a little rendezvous with my beloved sewing machine,
i'm more than a little bit in love with it.
i also love that it was super easy.
and i feel a bit like fraulein maria, aka the original hipster, in my homemade dress.
i had to tweak the original pattern a bit because i wanted real sleeves rather than flying squirrel sleeves, and my skirt had two layers (a sheer layer and a solid underlayer) to work around.
if you want info on how i did it, grab my email over on the sidebar and send me a request.
i'll draw you a fancy picture with crayons or something.
ok ok here's a bigger view of it, if you insist:
skirtdresses for the win,
