So I have several things rolling through my mind I want to blog about. At the top of the list, or pretty close anyway, is Pinterest. I am having a love/hate relationship with it but not for the reasons I've seen others talk about. I really don't spend that much time on there. My issue is the legalities of Pinterest that are rearing their ugly heads. My post will take awhile to write as there is a lot, a lot, a lot of linking to be done and credit to be given, and some more research to be done. I have a ton of things to get done today so it will have to wait. Maybe I will write it while traveling in a few days!
For now I will show you a skirt I recently altered.
Jeans turned skirt. With ruffles. It's a win-win!
This was for a friends daughter.
Close-up of ruffles. I will try to do a tutorial of how this is done the next time I do one of these. It really isn't hard if you like to sew.
And the back.
Close-up of how I lay the back seam for restitching. I do the front the same way.
I really will try to do a tutorial of this. Lots of people love this look and it isn't hard. But there are a few tricks that would make it easier for you if you have never done it.
Now I'm off to get the laundry done, get Middle Sister packed to head out with Grandma and Grandpa for Kansas, and then to alter a couple things for me so I can take them Kansas with me when we leave. Oh yes, and I have to talk to the house/cat sitter about taking care of the place while we are gone. So nice to have someone to take care of things while we are out-of-town.
