fairy skirts i made this week
fairy skirt # 1 "the peach fairy"
fairy skirt # 2 "friend the girl"
friend the girl close up (i used the same type of sequins on
both skirts because it was so necessary to do so.
peach fairy is made of a vintage dressing gown and other lacy bits
the woman at the antique shop told me the lady that owned this
gown lived with her sisters until they were in their 90's.. none of
them ever got married.. and they kept eVERYTHING. subsequently
EVERYthing they owned is in the antique store! she asked me what
i was going to do with the things i bought.. i didnt have the heart
to tell her they were about to be ruthlessly shredded and combined.

friend the girl is made of a very old victorian looking
ralph lauren button up and other lacy bits.
little fairy friends side by side
these are mostly for unicorn riding,
but can be worn to parties in the woods,
or to the pond for firefly watching.
