Mexican Painted Skirt restoration...and news!

 Hey everyone!
It's been a while since I've done a sewing post. I've been busy, and I think I'm nearly ready to reveal why. But first, check out this AMAZING Mexican painted skirt I got a couple months ago.


It has the same image on both sides and it is in amazing shape. The more I looked over it I realized most of these skirts were made to be disposable because of how cheap the fabric is that they are made of. In any case, this amazing sample has stood the test of time and she is mine now.
