(how I wore it today - it was a cold and dreary day in NYC!)
What I made:
This blue and white striped cotton mini skirt...although it started out as something very different - a shirtdress! Basically it was a complete and total unsalvageable disaster, so I decided to just chop the bottom off, cut up some excess to make a waistband, and use the buttons I already had to close up the side.

June 2010. At first I was very, very sad that my shirtdress plan wasn't working out, but in the end, I actually kind of dig this skirt!
The button closure - although this was a complete fluke and the only reason I did it was because I didn't have a blue zipper lying around.
The fabric - this picture doesn't show the color very well, but the blue and white stripes are really cute!
