Cleveland , Ohio...
I wanted something cute to wear to class, so I whipped out some elastic and an old curtain my friend gave me when she moved to Boston. I was in Forever 21 earlier in the day and saw a billion elastic skirts and I thought I could make a cute one on the cheap. It ended up being a super fast project and I’m very pleased how it turned out. It’s just a long rectangle of fabric with elastic sewn at the top. The best part was that I used the side of the curtain that was hemmed, so I didn’t even have to hem it! It only ended up costing me $1.50 for the elastic. I wore it to class today and got a few compliments!
