The old pair of jeans arrived in beautiful Michigan after their quick trip across country courtesy of USPS Priority Mail.
Of course after their long trip they were tired and even more worn out. They decided they needed a rest and wanted to hang out for a few days and take in the sights of beautiful Michigan. After their much deserved rest the fabulous and creative Mary Ann Nietz of Mercantile Lane got down to business and this is what she did.
Aren’t they adorable! These are the cutest things ever and my little gal and I now have matching OOAK(one of a kind) mommy daughter skirts, Please! We are in heaven. To say we LOVE these one of a kind, beautiful, unique skirts is an understatement. They are truly pieces of ar, treasures and will be a part of our family forever.
Look at all the work that went into these. Let me give you a little tour.
First of all, the legs were cut off. Mary Ann is so brave, far braver than I.
Next she had to fix a few things so the jeans would lay flat, she added a little piece of material to help with that.
Mary Ann was ready to sew.She attached the gathered fabric to the jeans.
Next she created the most cleaver pocket
And attached it when finished
She also gathered the skirts from the hem, added some vintage lace, pretty ribbons and a handmade rosette.
Mary Ann is so cleaver and creative.
I can not tell you the joy that my little gal and I had when the box arrived with our skirts. We had a school function and promptly wore them to the function. We got so many compliments and I handed out so many cards. If you would like a OOAK skirt that has been lovingly made by Mary Ann, visit her Etsy store Mercantile Lane.
These days it is not easy to find quality work let alone one of a kind anything! Besides that who has time, certainly not me but I guarantee that Mary Ann does and she will treat you right. She has great customer service skills, answered my questions quickly, she is a real gem to do business with. Not only this product gets 5 stars from me, so does the service. So head on over to Mercantile Lane, take a look you won’t be disappointed. So what did the traveling jeans have to say about this. They were glad to be home and so pleased to get to hang out with my and the little gal and have more adventures. New, fun girly adventures. I even think I saw them smiling.
