I made this skirt from my project “elastic strip skirt”. I wanted to revamp it so I had more room in the skirt, it was pretty snug and I didn’t have much fabric left at all. So I added a zipper where the seam was. I can turn the skirt any way I want the zipper. It does crinkle a little when it’s in the front, but it is a lot more comfortable now.
I styled it with my Liberty of London for Target top and my favorite Michael Kors heels. I added my oooh so fabulous cloche hat. I felt very Gossip Girl in this outfit.
Open ended gray zipper and blue thread.
