a red poppy print on my favorite skirt…the day after i purchased this skirt, i spilled paint on the front. to remove the stain, i dabbed on a bit of bleach. i don’t own a lot of silk and had no idea that mixing the two would turn white silk a yellow brown. well, i knew i had to repair this lovely skirt and cut out the ruined section and replaced it with a layer of satin that i handstiched with hot pink thread.
it’s still my favorite skirt. and i love that it’s an original.
