sewing~ rabbit skirt

i made this about 5 years ago from the “sew u” built by wendy book. i can’t say enough nice things about this book. the pattern is super simple, just 2 pieces with darts. i really wanted a long comfortable skirt in a neutral color that i could personalize. i actually made a few skirts from this pattern with different embroideries. it’s addictive πŸ˜€ 
skirt front: rabbit and pocket.
i drew and then embroidered the rabbit.

velvet ribbon

i don’t actually know what’s going on here, but it appears i’m about to fix james bond a drink. obviously i’m ms. moneypenny. wallflowers unite!

karl wants to take photos too! 
“Dada!” {mikael is taking the photos}

karl is wearing a star wars shirt that’s, inexplicably, in rasta colors. we’ve dubbed it, “episode 4:20.” yeah, we’re lame.
the best part? people ask me where i bought it!

    I love the embroidered rabbit – it's been pinned up on my pinterest board πŸ™‚ I also love the bow and binding in the back. You did a great job making a toned down skirt that is definitely unique and personalized.
