Chambray is whispering sweet nothings in my ear right now. And while I love the look of those short little skirts with the wide elastic waistband, I feel the need to wear tights and a tucked in shirt to pull them off. Which is not an everyday look for me.
Instead, I grabbed a skirt from a thrift store and made some modifications.
It came with a ruffled selvedge hem that felt a little too grungetastic to me. After a little howdoyado with a seam ripper, it was gone, revealing a perfectly fine hem that I didn’t need to mess with.
I drew up and cut out an elaborate flower stencil but then ditched it because it felt too overwrought. Instead, I added happy gold dots from a Lotta stencil in glittery textile paint.
Apparently the dog is hypnotized by the sound of a camera shutter. She wouldn't budge.
