Today’s piece for began as a rather frumpish maxi skirt.
I liked the plaid print (something I own very little of), but it just wasn’t doing it for me as a skirt. I hiked it up under my arms, and surprisingly it stayed up all on its own. I tossed on a belt and a few accessories and was all set for a date night with the fella. :)
see that black thing that’s roped around my neck a few times? That’s a fabric necklace/scarfish thing that I made from a jersey knit pillow case. All I did was cut several strips from it, and then sewed them end to end to make a big circle.
We went to the to see The King’s Speech, which was completely amazing, and definitely worthy of the Oscar! Afterwards, we stopped by for some tasty Mac n Cheese and an equally tasty Wheat Ale. T’was a fun, relaxing evening!
