I thought for sure I had taken a photo of this skirt in it’s total before state, but I guess not. Before I cut, hemmed and pieced it together, this dress was an ankle length skirt. I saw it on the thrift rack last weekend and I think I’ve mentioned before that I fall for anything blue in color. Obviously I needed this skirt and was certain I could make something from it. I’m not a plan-ahead kinda seamstress, I’m pretty sure if given a test, I probably wouldn’t even qualify for the title, but I’ll say this for my skills: I wore it around today and nothing came unstitched. That’s really what I go for…who cares how straight the stitch, as long as it doesn’t pop open when I sit down. Even with the flaws, I’m so happy about this dress that I made Josh stop in a random parking lot to take photos while the boys sat in the car listening to Relient K’s version of Justin’s “Baby“. I know, where are my priorities right?That’s what we do when we “step out” on Saturday….take random photos in parking lots.
