From old leftover curtains to a girly skirt
Ive always adored mothers who are able to make crazy beautiful clothes out of almost nothing. Just some old leftover fabrics, pair of scissors and working sewing machine - voilá - there comes the fashion, like some sort of magic.

My mom was one of those mothers. We were not literally poor back on my childhood days. But she rather made pretty things for me than bought pretty expensive ones from shop.

I always wanted to be like those magic moms and I decided to give my creativity a change. This skirt is made of a leftover piece of fabric from my living room curtains. My girl did choose a old gift box ribbon form my craft box to be added to her skirt. She also found a gem stone and we decided to put it on too.
