Gratitude skirt (aka what I wore for Thanksgiving)

Added Jan 5, 2011

South Ogden, Uta...






Prudencerabbit’s obi apron made into a skirt and downloaded gratitude (in German) template painted on using freezer paper stenciling. The skirt is a little wonky but it works. Thank heavens for the tie waist because I had to loosen it up a couple times after pigging out on Thanksgiving dinner! I love the white contrast of the word on the bottom.

Material Notes

Repurposed linen (mustard color), tie made from unknown material, paint




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type

    I love this whole outfit, the colors are great. It really shows a “look”. The letters are a nice touch! Great job!

      Thanks, you are so nice. I’m glad you like the colors—I was afraid it looked like a rainbow threw up on me! (At least I took out my orange headband-j/k)

    I love this outfit – the colours are wonderful together and that skirt and the stencil are fantastic! You look fabulous – and the green necklace finishes off the look so nicely.

    I hear what your saying re adjusting the tie!!! So handy!

      Thank you, I wear the boots far too often-sometimes my husband wonders if I actually have dress shoes!
