. . . for Lauren and Lauren: DIY Chevron Skirt

September 23, 2012

DIY Chevron Skirt

skirt: made my me   tank top: old navy   shoes: dsw  necklace: wild about jewlery

I almost posted this last week, but I figured I would spread out my chevron print projects after sharing these pillows.   



I made this skirt following this tutorial.
And it really was pretty easy.  

I walked out to show it to Chris and the first thing he said was, 

"You look like a pillow."

He sure knows the right words to say. 

I guess I can't blame him since I had just made the pillows a the day before. 

I really like it with a belt too.  And plan on wearing it in the Fall and Winter with boots. 

Definitely my favorite skirt I've made so far!
