Petticoat Junction!

If you can remember that tv series, you are dating yourself. I happened across the extremely creative Alisa Burke's blog in my travels and saw her tutorial on a petticoat skirt. I wanted one and voila, this is my version. She is a messy girl after my own heart. (Hey, I am going to replace that carpet someday anyhow!)

I have to confess....I am a fabric hoarder. I have fabric I bought to make my daughter a baby quilt and she is now 28. I have a dresser, a trunk and several boxes full of scraps that I am going to turn into something someday. I am sick to death of clothes not fitting and am trying to sew my own stuff. I am also sick of the fact that clothes are one style and generally a certain number of "in" colors and every chain you go to has the same thing. I always intended to be eccentric in my old age so I'd better get started now.

Oh yeah, I found the wonderful suspenders at the dump!

Sheesh, Paula. You make me laugh. I'm with you on the eccentricity thing. I'm going there myself and loving every second of it. You look marvelous!
