hey sailor! mini skirt

Added Dec 29, 2009

Tokyo, Japan






i found this fun fabric at a fabric shop in japan. it has small helm print all over in white background. since the fabric is unique, i decided to go simple. really easy skirt with elastic waist. i added two pockets and sash.

Material Notes

cotton, elastic band, thread




Garment Type
