Three tiered skirt plus more new stuff!
So, I get this fabric at the store...its premade patchwork. I have went crazy over this stuff and have some more in my stash just waiting...I found some in ALL PINK! Its just for me though hehehehe. ANyhoo... I got this stuff here to make some pants...but the more I got to looking at it the more I thought it should be a tiered skirt. So here it is in all its spinny goodness. You can also see more of it in my ETSY SHOP!
I decided to do something different with the bloomers. I always thought this style was cute so I tried it and I have to have me a pair of these. Wouldnt these just be precious under a skirt thats about knee length?!
These are made from a white quilters cotton that I dyed myself. Yes, I tried tie dying again and you see the results...obviously I need to go back to the drawing board, but they turned out a lovely shade of purple anyways. I adore this purple. I also "tie Dyed" a couple of my ratty looking white t shirts I wear like a uniform and they are also this shade of purple..its a really nice color. Not too bright, not too dark. Just purple. You can see some streaks of white in these in random places where they were ALMOST tie dyed...but not quite.(sigh) You can see more pictures of these in my ETSY SHOP TOO!
Here is a skirt that for some reason I have had in my inventory box since winter time. The listing for this expired and since the pictures of it did blow all to hell and back I figured I would redo the pictures and try again. This skirt has an applique done by *me* that I have been doing for years. This is my mommy's favorite applique of mine so thats one reason I keep recreating it. Its always a little bit different than the last time.
This is also available in my ETSY SHOP! for only 60 bucks. I am listing it so low because we kinda neeeeeed the money.The price in no way reflects quality, so dont let the somewhat low prices fool ya! I do all french seams in my stuff except where otherwise noted. All other seams are topstitched.
And these adorable bloomers here just made me think PUNK ROCK GIRL! My favorite song by The Dead Milkmen...does anyone out there even KNOW who the Dead Milkmen are?? Does Anyone remember??!! If you was part of the skater scene of the late 80's early 90's then you know who the Dead Milkmen are hehehehe. Anyhoo, I kinda broke away from my usual stuff here by making these, it was fun and I am sure this shocks my usual customers LOL. If these dont sell pretty quick I may just keep em and grab my old Suicidal Tendencies Skateboard and go skate!
These have little skull beads on the sides, and a star button, and a cute white bow. These are really adorable in a goth/punk sort of way. These too are up in my shop!
This skirt was "sold" a while back but the buyer didnt come thru...she decided to open up a garage with her hubby instead. Some people! I swear. Pass up this skirt to have her own business...the nerve! Anyhoo....this is another project made with that cool premade patchwork fabric. This is in purple plaids...I got this thing with purple and plaid lately Hmmmm....Anyhoo, this has a roo pocket, and I embroidered a fairy sitting on a mushroom and a buncha little mushrooms on the pocket...the pocket is made of corduroy and fully lined too.
This is Maylee laughing cause I look stupid in the picture. Aint she a doll.
This will be on Etsy probably tomorrow (sunday 8-03)
I am trying to space out my listings over the whole weekend to keep my stuff fresh in the searches.
