Mother Daughter Team

shirt: thrifted, skirt: homemade, tights: anthro, shoes: target, necklace: wal-mart

This summer when my family was out visiting I convinced my Mom to help me make a skirt. You see, for many years she tried and tried to get me interested in sewing. Unfortunately, I was highly uninterested. It was neither anime nor mario kart 64. Now all I want is for her to sit beside me all day and let me glean her sewing and cooking and wonderfulness. Life is funny, sometimes. But luckily I have the most kind and patient Mother and even though I had nothing but a picture of what I was wanting, we figured it out. We were pretty excited.


Also, I made sure to get a shot of these tights because are really really really fun to wear.


  1. Go inside RIGHT NOW! These pictures are making me cold. :)

    I can totally relate to the sewing and cooking dilemma! I have a few sewing projects that I'm holding on to, hoping Mom will visit soon :).

    Love the tights!

  2. Oh, I'm so jealous! I wish my mother could sit with me and teach me to sew - but she doesn't sew either. She is gifting me a sewing machine for Christmas (once I pick one out).
    Your skirt looks amazing!

    The Auspicious Life

  3. I would love nothing more than to sit by you and sew and giggle and cook all day! Ahhh that would be the life! Watch out! We may move into your basement.....

  4. love the skirt. i too squandered my sewing lessons my grandmother offered to give me. and now she doesn't want to teach me. boo.
    love your blog. i really like your style. i've never been able to master effortless.

  5. that's real pretty skirt dear. and look at you guys sewing and all. my mom's given up on me. i'm sure she'll laugh when i tell her i want to learn.
