|I can't quite decide which skirt to wear today ...|
Anyhoo, here are my creations ...
I made the 'Change of Heart' skirt for the first time (pattern available just follow the link). And I love, love, love it, so it won't be the last ... such a clever idea ...
Also quite chuffed that an old sheet could make such a smart skirt - getting in the mood for recycling ... there's a much better pic of it, and more goings-on at the retreat on Jody's blog. Go take a look, you know you want to!
Part of the retreat was to shop around the op shops in Busselton to find little treasures we could upcycle, and I found this lovely denim skirt which had been handmade by somebody else. It had no sizing label but I bought it anyway hoping it would fit, and it did - perfectly :) I'd also bought a quilt cover for $4 which I decided to make into some kick pleats to add a bit of movement to my skirt.

It's amazing what can be found in the old op shop, and even more amazing how much inspiration you can get from sharing time with like-minded people. Great fun :)
