Im crazy, I made this skirt in 45 minutes, 1 hour prior to me going out a friend's birthday party...



I got the fabric from Wal-Mart for $2 a yard. I took up about 2 yards, so this skirt was only $4 total. Can't beat that!

I was gunna stab myself in the eyeball for waiting until the VERY LAST MINUTE to do this skirt, but at the same time I enjoyed the rush and challenge. It just showed me that I didn't need to bust out every pattern making tool that owned to make something so basic. Owning a serger also sped up and helped with the process drastically as well.

Hope ya'll like!

I can't believe that only took you 45 minutes!
The whole outfit is great and the colors in that skirt look beautiful on you!

Very nice! Cute party outfit. I can't thread a needle in 45 minutes. Okay, that's an exaggeration but really...45 minutes to make a skirt? You are amazing!
