Spent the better part of my day making this skirt with the help of this tutorial by Tania. I absolutely love it. It's perfect for amateur sewers (like me). I already have an idea for my next one. Scalloped edges, anyone?
While I was making this, I knew yellow would go well with the maroon color of the skirt. I thought yellow on top would be overkill so I went for this striped blue shirt to complement the red and added a wee bit of yellow. I originally had the bow in the front but it felt off to me so I turned it around just to see what it looked like and I love the look of the clean yellow line with the blue stripes.
Wearing AE striped tee ($7), DIY skirt ($2), yellow ribbon belt (from my MIL), and Ros Hommerson oxfords ($25).
Random trip picture of the day:Batad, Philippines. My dinner of fried rice with vegetables and corned beef. It was delicious.
