The ex- dull skirt

I had made (not that well as you can see by the unmatched seams) this ankle length A-line skirt.

Very practical, sensible and boring.

Never wore it. Not once.

I kept thinking about the skirt on the front cover of ‘Home’ by Anita Kaushal and embroidering something on mine.

But what?

After some weeks of thinking and still not wearing the skirt, Joe presented me with this brilliant drawing of a fox.











The skirt is no longer dull.

    And if anyone asks you can say it is descriptive of the wearer 😉

    The drawing has such character! What a great idea. It really is so cute on the skirt.

    Your skirt looks good. I keep thinking of decorating a dull green skirt. Ps The toffee sauce was fab, we tried it last night!

    It’s wonderful. I love your choice of color for the embroidery. Tone in tone is so chic.

    […] And made it into a long a line skirt (using the same pattern as for this one). […]
