In the spirit of this past week’s EBEW: DIY, I thought I’d work another DIY item into today’s Secondhand Saturday. Though this skirt is self-made, I made it from fabric I purchased at a garage sale, making it a Secondhand Saturday qualifier in my book!
Upon browsing my archives, I realized that this cute fruit printed skirt hasn’t gotten much blog exposure. Besides wearing it for EBEW: Floral last spring, I have been wearing it in mostly “off the blog” outfits. It was a great summer staple with a tank top and sandals, and I think the apple print is equally fitting for brisk fall days, paired with tights and scarves!
I returned from vacation earlier this week (more on that later) to find that autumn has truly landed in our neck of the woods. Sadly, the looming rain is threatening to cancel my plans to visit a local pumpkin farm and corn maze today. At least I am not without a back up plan – I’ve scoured the internet for pumpkin-based recipes to try, and I’m stocked up on reclaimed fabric in autumn hues for a special project. Are you partaking in any fun autumn activities this weekend?
