On an Autumn Afternoon

A Sunday afternoon project.
I gathered up some autumn colors. . .

Sunday project. When all else fails, be creative.
So, here goes.... what will I do with these items?
I am thinking something vintage.
Here are the pieces:  A sparkly india-style kurdi tunic.
A cut velvet scarf. A velvet textured skirt.  A bunch of fringe and beads.

And, a search for inspiration.

Here we go. . .

The first cut.

Ok. So let's see how it turned out.
