“Admittedly, this is not the most exciting skirt ever! But I think it’ll be a good staple, something that will compliment a lot of different tops. I made it out of a thrifted-thrifted skirt – yea, I re-made it twice. The skirt originally came from a second hand store, and I tried to make it a bubble skirt. I didn’t follow a tutorial – I just decided to pull the hem up under the waist… which made the waist about a half an inch thick – NOT so attractive, but I thought “Oh I’ll just stuff it all under this big black belt and it’ll be cool”… ehh.. I dunno, it was cute but not all that wearable." – from the post on my blog
Used Simplicity pattern #2451.
Thrifted skirt, probably cotton/lightweight denim
