Double-time! How to Wear DIY: Ruffled skirt and custom cardi
First, the easy one. I don't think I did a post for it, but the sweater I'm wearing is a nice one from LOFT that I got at Goodwill despite the fact it was at least 1.5 sizes too big. I took it in using the tips I explain in this tutorial.
Next, the fun one! The skirt--crossover drape, pre-ruffled fabric so super easy... I made it and explained it in this tutorial using Ruffle Fabric! Only takes a little over a yard. Seriously check out that post for inspiration on ruffly goodness and how fun and easy it was to use the Ruffle Fabric!
When I made the skirt I was imagining it in a cute look for a party or dinner-type occasion. But, it's winter still, so... here's a take on it that's a little bit more practical for the season here in Oregon.
With the natural waist of the skirt, it'd be a shame to hide it with a layer over, so I tucked the sweater in! It's fun to show off the waist with a waist belt, but keep it warm enough with the long sleeves.
I love the back of the skirt, too. Those ruffles are so fun!
