The Bourbon Skirt


Last summer, while visiting my mom and grandma in Bourbon, Missouri, we went to a couple of resale shops in town. I found some great treasures including 25 cent bakelite, a fantastic pink lamp with a fiberglass lampshade and this pretty tiki print cotton fabric. The fabric had been stashed away in a box for months. I woke up the Thursday before Memorial Day and decided to make it skirt with it to wear in the country that weekend. I love the way it turned out and it's very comfortable and I whipped it up before lunch time!


  1. That skirt is so pretty! Loving the colours and the print is really lovely. :)

  2. I love making my own skirts. They are relatively fast and easy to make and can be so much cheaper than buying RTW. Great job, this is beautiful.

  8. Hello Brittany! I just wanted to say thank you for this lovely blog!
    I'm a plus sized, curvy vintage-loving redhead from Sweden, and recently I've had a lot of issues with my appearance due to outgrowing many of my dresses and feeling ugly next to stylish, thinner friends. But today I found your blog and I realised that if you can look this absolutely stunning, then so can I! Now I've browsed through most of your old outfits and I feel empowered and inspired! Thank you so much for that! You look lovely!


I read every single comment (even on old posts) and they make my day! If you have a question, please email me at Thank you for reading me!
