Me-Made-May: Refashioned Grandma’s Skirt

The flowery dress I wore on Tuesday was, once upon a time, my grandmother’s home-made skirt. Her old clothes sometimes go through me before being thrown out, and I sometimes find treasures I want to keep, usually because I remember her wearing it all over my childhood memories.
This refashioning started with me whimsically pulling the skirt up and saying this would look good as a dress. Then, after it was brought to my attention that grandma also made a matching belt, I started thinking I could actually work something out of this. I narrowed the original waistline a bit, so it would stay above my breasts, and attached the the added belt  below, to tie on the back. I then added the decorative buttons (some of which as cover-up for old stains), and that’s it. Piece of cake.

  4. אה, דבורה שואלת למה בתמונה מהגב את בלונדינית?

    • הקצוות של השיער הרבה יותר בהירים מאשר השורש, בעיקר בגלל השמש וקצת בגלל שאריות של צביעת שיער ישנה. מעבר לזה נראה לי שמשחק כאן הנושא של הבדלי צבעים בקליטה של המצלמה בכל זווית.
