Updating a plain hand-me-down.

My mom gave me this denim skort that had a rip in it to fix and keep if I wanted.  I love denim, and I am sure that denim must be God's most favorite fabric.  So... of course I am keeping it!  But it was a little (or a lot) on the blah side.  I wonder what could be done about that?  Silly me.  Embroidery of course!

I have a new flower design from Lynnie Pennie that I was just dying to try out.  I was reminded of this design by Just Jo's blog entry From Shirt to Skirt.

Here is the skort before any embellishment:



Then one flower:



But, I didn't think just one lonely flower would do.  So...



Now I have a new-to-me, fun skort to wear anywhere I want to make a cute fashion statement.  Maybe I could even call this "upcycling"?



This is my entry for
Transformation Thursday

  1. That is so cute! I'm useless when it comes to re-doing clothing of any sort!!!

    Don't be afraid of Mod Podge, it is soooo much fun. Once you start you can't stop, if my husband stands in one spot for too long he may get mod podged too:)
