This skirt reminds me of the (British Comedy duo) Morecambe and Wise Sketch 'Stormy Weather' hence the title
This was a basic Old Navy skirt, in Camel cord and I'd like to preface this post by stating that I don't profess to have any skills at all with Embroidery, in fact I have a love hate relationship with the stuff. I love the way it looks on me but I hate the way it looks when I try to do it! .
I ummed and ahhhhed about whether to post pics then my hubby talked some sense in to me, if I start editing what I put on here, i.e only posting what I think is top notch then I'm not being true to myself and also if I am inspiring people to sew, then I should really show them that not everything works out, fact of life!
I do like that it looks like a child has sewn it, and my hubby rather sweetly said that both a little girl and an Adult could wear it, which probably means that I look like I shopped at Gap Kids! oh well, back to the drawing board!
So here it is, my measly offering of Embroidery, it was inspired by a project in this book.
