But at least I looked kind of cute.
I found this skirt (size L) at Savers for $5 a while back. I cut the top third off, folded down the top edge over a length of elastic, and voila! a skirt that fits me. I especially love the little metal studs along the navy strips:
Seriously: how could I not try to make a skirt with that detail work?
My husband hates these, so therefore I want to wear them on the daily:
