When I saw this skirt by Gina Sekelsky at Lettergirl and Rich Inner Life, I let out a little squeal.  As an entry into a contest for Alabama Chanin-inspired sewing projects, she incorporates Alabama Chanin’s distinctive reverse applique and handstitching.   Instead of a flower or swirly design for the applique, she adds an entire quotation to the skirt.  The letters become a design element while at the same time making a meaningful statment.  See more photos of her fabulous project over at Rich Inner Life.
