I had an hour to spare last night, and decided to go through my stash of leftover fabric and come up with something. I had a turquoise twill leftover that I used already on two other garments, and some lace from my Halloween dress. I hunted for the easiest skirt pattern I had, and in a hour, I had this skirt (sorry for the crappy cell phone photo, I'll make a decent post with this look when I get home).
Then I posted the picture on Instagram, and someone told me they saw a similar skirt on clearance on a high end site for $100. Then I went to search for it, and found another one, somewhat similar, for $278 on the outnet. I guess lace over mint colored skirts are in. But my way was cheaper!
UPDATE: I took some decent photos of the skirt and the outfit. Enjoy!
