Linen and Leather Newsboy Cap

I can hardly believe it, but I made a hat!  Or more properly, a linen and leather newsboy cap.  And if you can’t tell, I’m quite pleased with my new creation.

Brown Floral Skirt – Lackluster to Linen Loveliness!

On this skirt remake, I started with two pieces with potential that just weren’t cutting it yet. The first was a tan corduroy mini skirt. I don’t like that length, so the miniskirt wasn’t working.  Cost $2.50 at a thrift store.
