Happy Hippie Petticoat and Apron Skirt

  Muslin Petticoat with appliqued butterflies.



Each butterfly was hand drawn and layered onto the petticoat. A satin stitch was applied to each individual piece.



This is the patchwork apron that is then worn over the petticoat. It is tied with a bow that loops around to the front of the apron.





   A view of the front.



                                                 

   A view of the back.




This petticoat and apron skirt sold for $150.00 to a head shop in Mendocino County California. I can't imagine what their mark up was. I hope whoever bought it loves it and wore it to the festivals this summer.

Peace Love & Granola ~
