Skirts are fun to make

So I made another one. I can't seem to keep up with the weather for Lara - nothing for it but to just keep making small clothes.

I just found the Alabama Chanin store and am hugely inspired (and really wishing I had $120 to spend on tshirts!). I'll definitely go check out their new book of projects. In the meantime - a quick reverse embroidery to accent a little play skirt:

Refashioned from a few different tshirts, and some embroidery floss. The lettuce edging on the hem is done by pulling just the very edge of the jersey apart with two fingers every half-inch or so.

Here is a detailed shot of the embroidery itself:
