second skirt


tank: express, shoes: kenneth cole, skirt: handmade, belt: target

i've been on a sewing kick again after realizing that i can make everyday clothes. (the only wearables i made before were for cosplay costumes.. oh you should totally see those.)
i really liked the way this one turned out and i can't wait to layer jackets over it and tights under it.
i think i'll make several. :)

    so jealous! i sent my mom a picture of a high-waisted black short skirt i wanted her to make for me and she said it looked like a french maid. maybe i should have sent her one that looked like yours since it's adorable!
