Pleats, Folds and Tuck

Hello Everyone. Hope you are all safe and well and that the weather is being kind to you.

Thank you for all of your lovely comments last week-I really enjoyed visiting all the blogs and seeing the different tags.

 I am sure this week there will be even more variety with  the wonderful choice of ideas.


I decided to be adventurous and go for all three. Pinned tucks at the waist-pleats for the bottom of the skirt and a piece of folded, extra material. I used a little bit of a very old tape measure as my topping for the tag. It does look a bit 'shabby' as I used an old silk scarf for the skirt and folded material and it frays so quickly.

Can't wait to see everyone's take on the theme

Love Chrissie x

  10. Love your tag, Chrissie. I haven't submitted one in a while, but sometimes I enjoy seeing what others did with the week's prompt more than I do creating my own.
    Have a great weekend.
