More MMM and a Blog Anniversary Giveaway AnnouncementPosted: May 10, 2014

And not so much a Me made as a Cheeky Re-fashion, I give you my Floribunda Denim Skirt.
I’m ridiculously pleased with this, it started life as a pair of Lane Bryant jeans, purchased on holiday in California last year. I was devastated to discover when I tried them on recently that they were now at least two sizes too big. Plus, I answered the door to a
charity collector chugger whilst wearing them last summer, and the woman said ‘Oooh! I like your pyjamas …’
That kind of put me off them.
So, last weekend, I chopped off the legs at the knees, split the inseams up to just above the crotch curve, and used the chopped off leggies to make triangular godets for the resulting gaps back & front. Hey presto, one fabulous floral denim skirt! I know I will get a lot of wear from this.
Finally for today, I noticed that towards the end of the month (23rd May) it will be the first anniversary of my little Bloggy adventure. It appears to be the tradition to give something away to celebrate, and to thank people for reading and commenting.
So, without further ado, I am pleased to announce my fab little birthday giveaway. Please leave me a comment saying what you would do with 2 lovely metres of Liberty Tana Lawn if you were to win it, and also perhaps a clue about what colours you favour. I’ll pick one at random and post the winner’s name on 23rd May, and I am happy to post anywhere, so don’t be shy. And a Huge Thank You for reading, commenting, encouraging, and generally supporting. (Applause).
