Weekend-only, you ask? Well, the reason is because I got a job! I'm officially an Assistant Technical Designer and this skirt is just too short to wear to work. I've had a full week of training on just the company info, hard and soft lines. This week I start job-specific training. Last week was so great and I'm so thankful the company put so much time and effort into training. I feel so lucky to have found this job.
Yay! Back to the skirt. I saw Tilly's skirt and thought it was really cute, but never intended to make it until I went to the swapmeet and found almost the exact fabric (for $1.50/yd. I might add). Yes, I know I could have made it with different fabric, but it really wasn't on my list of things to do. I followed the instructions for the most part because I honestly didn't want to have to think. Hehe. I omitted the pockets because I wanted to draft them a little differently from the instructions, but didn't want to take the time. I started the skirt last Sunday night, the day before my first day of work. Being the moron that I am, I decided to not make a paper pattern, which caused me some trouble. I accidentally cut the skirt too short, hence the skimpiness. It is totally wearable, but I can't bend over too far. :)
The buttons are from an estate sale find. I do love them.
