Sweet Valentine

This photo is the back of the skirt originally made from recycling ruffle scraps, hence the seam in the ruffle.  New skirts will not have the seam and not be made from recycled pieces.

I decided to merge my love of altered art and mixed media making this skirt my canvas.  Inspired by Valentine's Day I made an applique from a vintage Valentine.  A lovely fabric print reminiscent of a vintage hankie is ruffled behind the vintage Valentine. Sweet buttons are a lovely touch and serve no functional use.  A sweet bow is made from polka dot chiffon and topped with a button.  Vintage inspired prints are mixed and frosted like a cupcake with girly ruffles. ♥ VintagePrecious
