Make This Look in reverse - I found Kat's skirt in the shop today!

 

I went shopping today, to my favourite RTW shop, a British chain called Monsoon.

 

Look what I found:

 

I was really taken with it but couldn't think why.... until I remembered this:

  Rachel.. you are very welcome..I just told the truth..

I think we could suggest Mena to have an "aplique" theme...

 

and I glad you will try it...

Tee hee, that's so funny you found a skirt like mine! :-)

I like the doileys they've put on it - been thinking about experimenting with doileys on garments, and now I've seen this I think I may have to try it very soon!

I got a book for my birthday that suggests using doileys on cardigans, those little drinks coaster ones, and putting a vintage button in the middle of each - you are right, would make a good skirt addition too!

Hi Charlotte , I found the reverse aplique technique on a blog I follow....
