Hope everyone had a great weekend. We sure did! We stopped by our favorite thrift store on Saturday where I picked up some lovely vintage silk fabric.
I just love the colors and pattern, don't you? There were two yards, priced at $1.00 and I used half of it for my skirt project.
I simply wrapped the material around my waste two and a half times and then cut it. Then I sewed it together, front to front to form a tube.
I added twelve pleats, even spacing them and then sewed across the time. I also added a zipper. The final step was to hem the top and bottom and I was done!
I wanted it to be knee length since I was embracing a vintage feel. I added some black heels ( $12 from k-mart), white blouse (Kohls...only $1.50 after using my kohl's cash), black camisole (Aerpostale-$6) and some fish net stocking (I remember purchasing them in 10th grade but have no idea what I paid...)
Anyways, since I'm embracing the 50's maybe I'll go make dinner and do some vacuuming...all while wearing the heels of course.
