Denim Skirt Collage


I purchased a plain denim maxi skirt for a few dollars at a thrift store. It fit well, but I found it kind of boring. I tend to wear a lot of solid colored separates and since I’m no whiz at accessorizing, my “look” can be pretty dull. So I decided to try to add some pizzazz to this plain denim skirt. Using a stained vintage tablecloth from my stash and leftover fabric scraps from other projects, I used the denim skirt as my "canvas" to create a fabric flower collage. More details are available on my Blog post.

I have never seen an addition like this that works so well. integrated into the design rather than plonked on there. Wonderful!

Having the green lace and then the flowers applied on top really makes it all blend together just right.

I have a vintage table cloth that would love a new life on a skirt! Great idea and thanks for sharing!

I love the refashion! Great job. Like you, I'm not the greatest at accessorizing. It's a miracle I even remember to throw a necklace when I go out. :)
