Refashioned skirt with a Mexican twist!

Hi folks, here's what I did during the holidays!

I had to go back to work, but here I am, pretending it's still summer...

Alright, just a refashion is not much...except if you count that it's not just any ol' refashion. Actually, it was also my first try at embroidery!

My first inspiration was Mexican style embroidery, but I also looked at old school tattoo style drawings of roses to get them the way they look.
And of course, this project wouldn't be complete without a fail : I actually inserted the zipper the wrong way and the zipper pull is on the inside of the skirt. Bummer. Fortunately, it does not prevent me from pulling it on and taking it off, so I can wear it all the same!

  1. J'adore le motif de broderie, et le style mexique années 50 de l'ensemble. Et bravo pour la broderie, pour une première fois, tu as fait fort...

    1. Merci! C'était ma première broderie, mais ce ne sera probablement pas la dernière!

  2. Quelle belle jupe ♥ et chapeau pour ta broderie !

  3. What lovely work. I really like the Mexican style embroidery and the styling. Well done.
