Another Little Skirt

Reconned denim skirt for Lara

These are fun to make! Almost as much fun as they are to pose in...

The skirt is made from an old pair of jeans and pieces of a cotton ironing board cover from the IKEA As-Is bin. By the way, the book I posed the skirt with in the first picture is Pablo Bernasconi's Captain Arsenio: Inventions and (Mis)Adventures in Flight, which we found this weekend. It is really hilarious and has great art, though it is still a little too advanced for Lara. Also, in the kitchen picture you can see the Lara art wall - we have entirely covered one of the kitchen walls with her drawings in these IKEA frames (their colors are so perfect for kid's art!).

How did you make that skirt? It's gorgeous!

The skirt is adorable! Is the pattern your own and if so, will you share? Would love to make a couple of these for my daughter.

Your stencil portrait is just lovely! What a beautiful idea.

Looking forward to reading your blog now that I've found it.
