thrifted shirt ($5), flower (c/o Hot Magnets), skirt I made ($3), Target clog sandals (gift), vintage bag ($15)

Remember this skirt I made out of a thrifted IKEA curtain? I still had a ton of material left over so I made another -- a maxi skirt this time! I've been meaning to make it but haven't had time. I finally got around to it a couple weeks ago and wore it to church. It was a bit tight by my feet so I made a quick slit. Chase thought it looked like a maternity skirt. Looks like someone is having cereal for dinner.. And by someone I mean me.

I absolutely loved this outfit! The skirt felt a bit fancy so I paired it with a t-shirt and a flower for that extra something. I almost tripped a couple of times but at least I would have fallen gracefully -- at least, that's what I am hoping..

  1. I love it as a maxi! Maybe even more than the knee length one. Either way, I love the pattern on the fabric!

  3. I still cant get over your amazing creativity! This skirt is awesome, and i think i like it better that it has the slit...you do not look like you are wearing maternity clothes here! Trust me....

  7. I can never fall gracefully, so if you have special tricks, you really should share.  I love the print of that curtain, *ahem*, skirt. ;)

  10. I love that you paired that skirt with a tee shirt, such a good idea. I'm going to have to go look in my closet to see what I can make a little more casual with a great white tee!

  14. I've recently fallen in LOVE with maxi skirts...and the simple fact that you made this out of an ikea curtain is just amazing. WHO thinks of that? You're a genius.

  17. I LOVE this skirt! I made a maxi out of some thicker fabric and I just love the way it falls. If that makes sense. Anyway, I love the color and now I'll be on the lookout for cute curtains to refashion!

  19. Elaine, you are so cute! And Chase might have to meet my BF, because they seem to have the same awesome fashion compliments. I don't know what's worse, "maternity skirt" or BF telling me (every time I wear something vintage) "You look like a librarian/Anne Frank."

    For the record, your skirt does NOT look maternity...so cute! I am very jealous you can sew. I need to learn. You can learn anything from YouTube, can't you? ;) Have a great weekend!

    PS. It's my one-year anniversary at BSMMH! I'm still so thankful for your amaaaaazing web skillz and how you've allowed my blog to be so pretty for the past year. THANK YOU!
