Suzy Q Skirt
base for this upcycled skirt is a size 10 Bill Blass off-white denim
skirt. It has been done in a floral motif on the pockets and closure
and a band of cherries on the bottom of the skirt. Beaded ribbon with
floral sequins adorn the side and back seams, and embroidery highlights
in bright red cotton thread liven up the patchwork.
I have also draped a piece of a woolen scarf with a floral motif, for
an asymmetrical look. I thought that piece needed a border made of the
same sequined ribbon I used on the side and back seams, only this time
there is somewhat of a mild ruche effect to the ribbon work.
Finally, I felt the skirt needed some beaded accents, seed and real
garnet beads to evoke branches and buds, in keeping with the floral
Ideal for a summer picnic. OOK
