So I haven't posted in a while...classes  Angry ugh...but anyway...
I bought this skirt at the thrift store for like a dollar....of course I didn't take a picture of it  Grin
but it fell at about my mid calf...but I'm 5 feet tall....
anyways, it was kind of tiered and zebra print (!I LOVE ZEBRA PRINT!) and had sequins all over it! It was awesomeness =)

But of course, kind of ugly as it was....so, I made it into a dress with red lace and red ribbon lacing on the back:

YAY! So I'm pretty pleased with it-how about y'all?

That is absolutely beautiful! What about using a wider red ribbon in the back for a bigger POP of color? I love the way you have the back corset laced. Great job!!
