Goodwill supplied it all. The blank skirt, the blouses I got to cut up for all the images.
This is inspired by a skirt for sale on Etsy. (second photo)
I adore animals and just HAD to put a seal on a rock in mine. The rock is the reverse side of the waves fabric.
Sewing is hard for me so I put it all on with fabric fusing tape.
Initially, the sun was a lot smaller. But it looked like a moon that way and I want the ‘sun and fun’ feel so I made it bigger and was happier with that.
I decided not to use the buoy image as in the Etsy skirt. Just too much cutting and although I love buoys, I left that complicated thing out.
I put fray stop on all and was not happy that the ‘dries invisibly’ did not work. I had to redo the seal because the edges were so dark. Even with much less fray stop on it, I can still see the goop.
Ok, here’s the real kicker…
It took a week to do all of this. Much laying out, cutting, losing that darn tiny seal eye whenever I looked the other way and I crawled around on the floor looking in vain for it. Lost three eyes. So, all that work and when I went to put it on, I discovered that I PUT IT ON THE BACK OF THE SKIRT!! Good grief. So it is not too comfortable since the skirt has a very nice edge and pretty buttons on the front but the back is that wide thick elastic!
Oh, well. I am still gonna wear it.
thanks for looking.
