A Pinteresting Wednesday: Summer Skirt

I sewed for myself.

Woot! Woot!

I found this fabric for $2 a yard at The Mart. Yup it is true, sometimes you can still find cute fabric while shopping for milk, eggs, and bread.

Right away I knew I wanted to make a skirt from it.

I looked over my Project Pinboard and came across this skirt I had pinned.

I decided this skirt was just perfect for my striped material.

I wanted my skirt to hit high at my natural waist and I opted out of the bow, but those are the only changes I made.

This skirt was easy to sew and I did it in an afternoon.

I even put in an invisible zipper...not super well, so don't look close. BUT hey I did it now and I feel a little braver.

This skirt is super fun and a great addition to my Summer wardrobe. I feel super lovely and all girly while wearing it. Boy I love wearing skirts. It is pretty much the best part of Summer for me.

Once again Pinterest, I love you.

What have you pinned lately? Do tell.

I am still a pinning machine. To keep up with my oh-so-fascinating pins, follow me on Pinterest.

It looks fabulous! It looks so professional; I would never guess you picked up the fabric just an aisle away from the butter and eggs.

Sweet find on fabric. We seem to be on the same wavelength lately. ;)

Adorable skirt. Really, so cute! Nice job.

I will definitely be making this skirt, my question to you is, did you make this one like your high waisted maxi skirts? I love your creations! You're awesome!
