My first boyfriend my freshman year in college was Brian. I thought he was dreamy. He thought I was dreamy. But we never really made it past that first month of dreaminess, and then I met Matt.
And then Matt and Brian had the same major. And became close friends. And were roommates together in London.
And then Brian came to the fabulous Marcia and Matt wedding of Petron margaritas (or, at least, I think that's all that Brian remembers). And then I was lucky enough to go to a wedding in Minnesota with him and his gorgeous girlfriend Alli this summer.
Alli (who I like to call Guest for reasons that are evident in Brian's post about the wedding this past summer), was nice enough to send me a pair of her old jeans. Which I then turned into probably my favorite skirt I've made yet. It's another flower-y embroidery skirt, and it's done all in pinks with a little purple, white, and yellow.
And the back:
I really like how the trouser-length hem at the bottom of this skirt made that pretty distressed pattern at the bottom.
Also, as you know, I like to show off my work, so here are closeups of the embroidery:
Becuase I was doing frayed edges on this one, I did all the stitching by hand. And I think it worked out really well.
And remember, email me at marseeah(at)gmail(dot)com if you want a skirt of your own!
