Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.
Or with spring snow. No joke - it has been snowing today in Seattle.
But I have pretty posies:
This is a black cotton skirt with a lovely floral print that (again) I just grabbed at the op shop (yep, back in Australia) simply for the fabric. And because it reminds me so of a skirt that my dear friend Reneé wears. I could get the zipper done up but the waistband was too small, so off with the waistband and in with some darts in that top tier. A lovely bright blue grosgrain ribbon as the waist facing and it is springtime at my house, whatever the weather.
I have also finished adjusting the waist of my autumn leaves black velvet skirt. That was again a too-small waistband with quite a full gathered skirt attached. Again, I took off the waistband and put in some darts (sort of in the form of inverted pleats) and of course, a grosgrain facing inside the waist.
