"Amelia Tells Me So" Skirt.

I have a tendency to go a bit crazy with my refashions, to the point that they end up being over the top. How do I know this?.......Well Amelia tells me so. Amelia often says to me "Less is more Mezzy" Anyway this was going to be another one of those over the top refashions where I ignore Amelia. I can't help myself because I like a lot of layers, bling, colour and pizzazz. The plan was to cover multiple panels of this skirt with silk ties, vintage fabric and leave a few denim panels in between. I had big plans for this skirt. The first tie was an awesome match to the existing print on the denim panel, therefore I was well on my refashion way.
This thrifted skirt is okay....tad on the plain side though.

Nice floral print panels.

This gold silk tie will work perfectly. To fit the panel I need to unpick the back of the tie.

I then pin it into place on one of the plain denim panels making sure that it is off centre.

I use gold thread and for this project and sew the tie into place with a zigzag stitch. I am ready for my next silk tie and a load of vintage fabric....when I hear Amelia's voice in my head "less is more Mezzy"

This is one way of wearing this skirt. I have matched it to a mustard/gold vintage sweater with a beautiful draped neckline. I am going to the pictures today so I wear it with my cowboy boots.

Close up of the finished refashion. Simple, subtle and special. I know that I am going to enjoy wearing my "Amelia Tells Me So" Skirt.
