Polka Dot Chiffon Maxi

Chambray Shirt (old...I think I had this in high school), Polka Dot Maxi skirt: DIY, Green Bow Clutch: DIY - (tutorial coming soon).

I ordered this polka dot chiffon from Fashion Fabrics Club during their last sale.  I originally bought it for a blouse but then decided to make a maxi skirt instead. I found this great tutorial and FREE pattern for the skirt and got to work. I didn't use silk chiffon as the pattern suggested for price reasons but I think it still turned out. It would have come together quite quickly if it weren't for some silly mistakes that caused some very delicate seam ripping..grrr! But if you take your time and don't make careless mistakes you will have yourself a cute skirt in an hour or so.

    1. Thank you...the fit is a little tight but I could just barely make a knot in the front :) I guess it pays off to hold onto clothes forever-
