My sister commissioned a hot pink maxi skirt like Anthropologie’s Lengthening Rays Skirt (which cost $128 and is made of polyester chiffon).
My version was made of real silk chiffon, cost less than $25 to make (thanks to the awesome discount fabric store near me, which just happened to have the perfect color of hot pink chiffon for ~ $6 a yard)
I liked it so much, I made myself one in dark teal.
