Wow! So good on so many levels--the recycling/refashioning, the lovely finished project, the courage and creativity that created it, and, of course, the lovely liberty-ness of it all. Thank you for being such an inspiration!

Okay....where to begin? With your absolutely gorgeous daughter(who looks like she belongs running through a field with a crown of daisies in her hair) :) Or, your beautiful re-dos! I adore both(the pillow case skirt is stunning too) You just amaze me Margie...always.(even the tiny little embroidered snail on the bottom? wow)


And you make upcycled clothes, too! That shirring is wonderfully done, and I love how the whole ensemble turned out.


The skirts are wonderful, it was a great idea to practice on the pillow case!


This is gorgeous! I've been wanting to make a skirt like that for awhile now, but with pockets. Do you happen to know the width of the pillowcase you used?


so first, i love your blog and flickr stream so much! and second, did you see today's verse on verse daily? and is it the inspiration for your blog name? i think it's one of the most beautiful poems i've ever heard:



Fantastic in every way. I didn't know there was a Teen Vogue, if it was around when I was a teen I probably would have needed a second job!
I love the shirring. I have been wanting to try it on some jersey I have had hanging around (it's not nearly as lovely as your Liberty thrifted piece.) And your model is gorgeous as is her necklace :)


given clothes a second chance is always a great idea and with Liberty fabric to boot.

I love the fact that, just like me, you find hard to cut into beautiful fabric !
I think we should all consider joining the TLA (Tana Lawn-holics Anonymous) ;)

Now, I have to work something out with the pile of Liberty's Tana Lawn shirts (in huuuge sizes) my mum used to buy at the 1€ flea market !!!

Hello cialiS,

Don't ever think that the dress is outdated, in fact it's vintage theme is really awesome. It looks better than the other dresses out there so you got nothing to worry when it comes to fashion.
