I'm quite proud of my DIY skirt . Its not fancy but I love it. The blue with white polka dot fabric I bought a while back for another project that I never got around to doing. I started out following instructions for a DIY paperbag skirt, but I didn't follow them exactly when cutting the material so I ended up adding pleats in the front and back to make the shape less boxy. I think it turned out pretty well for my first non-costume wearable sewing project.
I went to Burlington Coat Factory for the first time since high school. There is one close to the grocery store I like to shop at so it may become my new favorite quickly. Before we bought our house I loved Ross, and it was next door to a grocery store too! I got this mustard yellow sweater at Burlington last week for $12. They seem to have a lot of good deals and I had an amazing cashier who was too lazy/in too much of a hurry to look up prices for unmarked or items not scanning properly and rang up a skirt and shirt for me as $7.99!
