Finished skirt

The other day I told you about a skirt I wanted to finish for Sara.I took the before and after pictures but I was having problems with my camera so, they got deleted by accident.I retook the finished skirt and here's one I took with just the fabric and the small piece of trim I had left over and the skirt.
I bought this Ralph Lauren jean skirt at the thrift store last year.It fit her just right around the waist but with her long legs it was too short.I almost threw it in the yard sale box.I'm so glad I didn't.I'm just thrilled with the way it came out.What do you think?

I love the orange,she dosen't have any orange in her wardrobe so I thought it'd be a good color to add.

Here's a close up of the fabric,the blue flowers match the jean skirt and the trim has shiny sequence on it.I just started sewing a few weeks ago thanks to Sis. Borlick,(their the ones that I told you about a few weeks ago that do children's ministry) she inspired me to take out my sewing machine and start using it.Luckily, I already had a sewing machine my mom had given me.Thanks Mom! and thank you Sis.Borlick!

The weather here in Texas has been wonderful and I just started my seed planting for our vegetable garden.I hope to share pictures of that soon too!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful day!

WOW! Too bad I gave my sewing machine away years ago after I couldn't even learn to thread it correctly. :)

That skirt is just beautiful. Great job.

Hi i love the skirt. That is a great way to make the clothes last longer! Can't wait to see the garden. We just tilled ours.
