a royal skirt.

well, it happened again.

I always do this...

I go thrifting.

I fall in love with a waistline, a print, a color.

only to find it  about 20 times too big. 

my sister always tries to talk me out of them.

sometimes she succeeds.

sometimes I make a project out of them. 

this navy crown printed skirt was just too much, I couldn't resist. 

I think it turned out rather well.

thoughts?

  1. i think you should send the first picture into a weight loss program and pretend you lost a lot of weight. I love that print too.

  5. Haha, I have to say, since the "after" picture was taken closer up, it makes it look like the skirt stayed the same and you shrunk to a "mini jess" in the first picture!

    :) I just scrolled back and forth a few times entertaining myself.

    Love ya!

    Ps... cute :)

  14. You seriously need to open a tailoring shop or something, all of you alterations end up looking fantastic!

    What a difference between the two!
