thurman skirt by gina sekelsky 01 About once a week or so, I'll be revisiting favorite content (yours and mine) from the old blog.  My most popular post, and a project I'm particularly proud of, was my reverse applique skirt, inspired by Alabama Chanin. skirt prep 1I started by freehand painting the quotation, with some of the words overlapping onto the back of the skirt.  Then I stitched around each letter, through two layers of cotton knit.  I ran out of black buttonhole thread about 2/3 of the way through, but since "necessity is the mother of invention" around here, I switched to the dark grey thread I had on hand.  Turns out I loved the look, but the thread itself was a nightmare.  So I eventually switched back to black.  And I love that too. Before constructing the skirt (also by hand), I trimmed out the center of each letter, revealing the black jersey underneath.  I get an inordinate amount of pleasure from the slow, thoughtful steps in the process. I loved this technique so much that I've gone on to make other projects with handlettered reverse applique, such as this cuff: wrist cuff by gina sekelskyThis scarf: love scarf by gina sekelskyAnd a few lines of poetry around the hem of this new skirt (which will be for sale at my trunk show this fall): reverse applique skirt by gina sekelskyI entered the original skirt in a contest on BurdaStyle, and was interviewed by Natalie Chanin (slow design guru/rock star).  You can read that interview here.  And if you're working on any reverse applique projects, I'd love to hear about them!
