Sewing Project #4: Vertical Striped Skirt
Sunday, April 24, 2011
Happy Easter! (To all of those who celebrate!)
So today is Easter Sunday -- in terms of fashion, this means lots of pastels and happy colors. :) Oddly enough, today was one of the gloomiest Easter Sundays I've ever experienced. It also rained, which means that the little kids at church didn't have an Easter egg hunt because it was too wet outside. :| Also, since I didn't go back to my home church this year, I wasn't able to steal candy from my little sister. Hahah! :3
Well, I was already anticipating what happy colors to wear. Over spring break, Jomarie (you remember my cousin with awesome sewing skills, right?) taught me how to make a simple bunched skirt with just cloth and elastic.
I somehow ended up with this cloth made up of lovely vertical stripes. I couldn't resist.
(*Sidenote* Please ignore the wrinkles... I took a nap after church, haha!)
Anyway, the skirt itself is pretty comfortable (especially since it fits my waist perfectly - the joys of learning how to sew) I couldn't help but pair it with this coral top -- the colors make me happy. :D
Thanks to Daniel for taking my photos today. :)
Top:Thrifted || Cardigan:American Eagle || Skirt:Made by me || Boots: Present || Peter Pan Necklace: Anniversary present
Tadaaa! While I made the skirt, I was considering on writing up a tutorial, so I took some photos during the process. So if people are interested, please let me know and I'd love to share -- it's pretty easy! :)
Hope everyone has a great Easter Sunday (or just a great Sunday, in general)! Eat lots of chocolate bunnies and colorful peeps! :D
