a trip to IKEA, of all places, yielded me some yardage that i'd been looking for to make a skirt i've been eyeing for ages. i perused a bunch of different tutorials and ultimately ended up winging it, using bits and pieces of skirts made by other, more talented bloggers. and i'm pretty excited with how it turned out - although you'll have to excuse the bad styling and the obvious bra lines through my t-shirt. heh.
i'm thinking that a simple navy top and a pair of neutral wedges would work with it, but feel free to style me as you see fit. i need all the help i can get, you know.
the other finished item is this dress:
it is so comfy, i dig it. oh, and can you tell that i've got a thing for
plus, when the hub got home and i was proudly modeling it for him, he side-eyed me and said "hmmm, went shopping, huh?" and i beamed as i said "nope, i made this." he was rather surprised, and i was so dorkily proud of myself.
i've got at least one other dress that i want to complete, and it seems simple enough to do. it's another totally-winging-it, in-my-head style using pieces of dresses i've seen online, and i hope it works. this time, it's yellow and white...stripes. yup.
it'll go really well with the wedges i just bought at payless. for $7. fantastic!
