Statement Mini Skirt

A mini skirt was the first thing that popped in my mind when I saw this fabric at Hart’s. I used McCall’s 3830 to make it. The pattern ran a tad big, so I made some adjustments to the hip area. Other than that, I’m really happy with the way it turned out. Oh and by the way, this pattern is a great foundation for an infinite amount of other skirts! I’ve already decided that I want to make a cute little peplum skirt using it. This is just the beginning… Have a great rest of the week guys!

      Thanks Rhinestic! Prints are kind of a new thing for me, so I thought a mini skirt would be perfect for the loud print.
