Paris, Je t’aime

I love Paris! I went for the first time in the summer of 2008 with my boyfriend and my mom on a whirlwind tour of Europe. It was everything I expected and more! I will never forget looking up at the Eiffel Tower at dusk and seeing it burst into light. I know some people think the twinkling lights are tacky, but that moment was magical for me.

Eiffel Tower Embroidery

La tour Eiffel skirt

I was doing a necessary purge of my closet a while back and found a plain black skirt that doesn’t get worn very often and I though it didn’t deserve such neglect! It’s nothing special but would be a perfect canvas for some kind of embellishment! I’ve been dabbling in embroidery lately and got a fabulous book called A Rainbow of Stitches for Christmas and was dying to put it to use. Enter the Eiffel Tower. Perfection! I was so happy with the final product. Neglected black skirt becomes a new favourite! Success!

  1. That’s amazing! Brilliant embroidery πŸ™‚ I’ve been doing a lot of stitching myself recently but only on aida (the little squares make me feel safe)- seeing your beautiful skirt has inspired me to get stitching on my clothes!

    • awww, thanks so much! Stitching on clothes is fun and it’s nice to have something that no one else has! Give it a go!
