Maritime Rust skirt

Wauwatosa, Wisco...






EASY!! I made this awhile ago and realized I never posted it! I made this skirt from leftover cotton from a pair of scrub pants I made (http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/mini-kimono-commotion-scrub-set). I made a rectangle and put the seam in the back. Overlocked the edges and made a single fold hem. Sewed on the elastic waistband and viola!!!

The color and when paired with the right outfit reminds me of a rust on a ship. I paired it with my hand-me-down anchor belt, silver sparkle Toms, and my H&M organic cotton navy striped tee. I can’t seem to find a candle for my giant lantern. Hopefully I’m never stranded at night with this!

Material Notes

Rust colored cotton, black 2" elastic with ruffle on bottom, thread.




Garment Type
Beach, Casual

    Your skirt is lovely – it looks great the way you have styled it with that belt and top :-)

      thank you for the comment :) My husband even thought it was cute (he thinks some of my outfits are a little wild)
