I'm on a new kick. From recycled tablecloth dresses to rehabbed flannel shirts. This is my second one. The first one hasn't been photo'd yet. I love flannel shirts, always have, but the problem is they just aren't very cool to wear anymore, now are they? Well, wait until you see my new Flannelstein top!

It took a week to figure it out & put together. Things you can't see very well in my blurry pix are the skirt pockets that came from the sleeves of another dress I made and the ruffled cuffs. They were the border trim from an African print tablecloth-turned-dress. You can see all the details clearly and up close on my Clothes for Fall page.
I'm wearing the Flannelstein top with an ombre gray to black dotted skirt (fabric given to me by a friend), gray & black houndstooth tights (given new in a swap), and my black leather/gray suede XOXO boot/shoes from e-bay.
Oh, here's some shoe shots...
With that I'm ready to join the Visibles at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style and Shelia's Shoe Shine. Then, tomorrow I'll be at Rhonda's Me Made Monday and Sacramento's Share-in-Style: Shoes. Hope to see you all there!
