Personally, we were tempted to title this post "Our Mommy is insanely cute", but we opted for more of a descriptive term about that fabulous skirt she's sporting.
If we had to choose simple words to describe what Mom likes to wear best it would be happy colors. Oh, yes. And she just likes what she likes, regardless if anyone else is wearing it (we love that about her). We have already previously mentioned that Mom wore a red and white checked skirt to her high school graduation. See what we mean? Happy and unique.
Mom's first idea for this skirt came to life after seeing jeans done up in a similar patchy way. (There are instructions in the ePattern about making skirts too.) When Nan came down last fall they put together a darling patchy denim skirt out of reds and navys, that is just perfect for fall. Well, of course, spring and summer call for something more bright and fun. And, who's fabric can be described like that better than our friend Jennifer Paganelli's?
It goes without saying that we can't just follow the directions to the letter. Oh no. So, Mom and Nan added specialty "cut out" pieces, and a gorgeous swath of vintage lace from Mom's fabulous stash. It was originally a table runner, so Nan meticulously cut around and about to make it that neat shape. Our those two great or what??
Happy and bright. Yep. That's our Mom!!
