Went out to lunch with Wendy last week.
After a lunch she took me to a vintage clothing shop on the same block. I walked in, saw this skirt peeking out of the rack and grabbed it. In less then 2 seconds. I fancy these appliqued skirts (I think I'm officially collecting them now that I have more than a handful) and I could spot one a mile away. Fortunately, everyone else seems to think they are ugly so it was 50% off.
But when I saw that the hen's wing lifted up and had a baby chick underneath:
So I bought it.
I've shared a few of my other applique skirts here before, like the house one I made. And this house scene one that I was wearing when I bought the chicken one. And also the velvety mushroom one. Oh, and this happy flower one too. Yeah. It is sort of a thing. I LOVE them.
And now I want to make another one. And possibly with a lift up flap that hides something else, just like the little chicken. Hmmmmmmm
