Everything fell into place, right fabric, right cut, right price *ASOS is always having a sale*, I put this guy right into my shopping cart. Then I looked in my closet and saw a sea of black skirts of various lengths *pencil skirt, maxi skirt, mini skirt...* We're right around the corner from spring and I'm gonna buy another boring black skirt? I decided I needed something bright and cheery to add to my wardrobe. Ideally I've been wanting this lovely skirt for years but I haven't found one in my price range *the one pictured was $200*

I love this yellow Gorman skirt *yeah, I love how blindingly yellow it is*

Guess who's out of stock? Bleh.
So I decided to make lemonade out of lemons. Why not use my dust-collecting Hello Kitty sewing machine to make my own skirt? I can custom tailor it and save major buckaroos at the same. I enlisted my amazing seamstress Mommy-in-law to help me out.
|Plenty of yellows to choose from|
|Two yards for ten bucks? Yes, please!|
|This was my first time using a pattern|
|Awww yeah, POCKETS ARE MY JAM!! *but very fucking hard to sew!*|
|Trying out my pleats|

|I know I hated on roses last week but these guys matched my skirt so well and peonies aren't in season yet|
By the way, did you notice my lavender hair?
There's no way I was gonna bleach my chemically straightened hair, so here's my trick.
|I wanted a silvery lavender color *definitely not grape* so I used Matrix SoColor 3VR|
|I bought white hair extensions, sewed some hair clips on the track and colored it myself.|
