If you’re like me, once Christmas is behind us, I immediately forget about the endless months of winter before me, and instead plan my spring wardrobe! In this case, I really am just preparing my little heart for Fashion Week in Feb. & I saw a perfectly LOVELY little romantic skirt on Aerie.com. Do y’all look on aerie for clothing? I usually don’t, but you may want to check it out. They really have some very sweet (less woodsy) pieces.

Here is one that I determined to mimic. Though with everything, I think that it was my idea first and they stole it! Haha. But here, it worked great. I had that fabulously thrifted green cotton print (recall my FINAL FIND, in Thrifting: P2), and was looking for a little skirt to whip it into. SO. Here is in the inspiration, complements of Aerie.com:

So. Few changes to the pic.
1. I added a few extra tips of chiffon underneath the calico to give it a shimmy look
2. Didn’t LOoooove the smocked option, so I did a simple casing and threaded in the wide elastic.
3. Lined with white muslin.

Here are some snaps of the initial fabric pieces:

More steps and completed pics to come.

And…posted this little friend on the lovely “Its a Hodgepodge Life.” Love her sweet site & button 🙂
