Description

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.

    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)
