So I've wanted to make a maxi skirt for about the longest time. I finally did!
I used this tutorial. It's super easy to follow! Yippee! I surged a rolled hem on the bottom instead of a double hem. The picture totally doesn't do it justice. And I had just gotten home from work, meaning tired old face and everything. Blah. Oh well. It's life. And of course I had to put two pictures cause I just couldn't decide which one was better.
And incase your wondering, I totally considered editing out my zits. I just thought- oh that'd make it look better. But then I went through this big debate in my head about how I HATE the magazine industry for the mere fact that they airbrush and photoshop every cover person so that they look like this amazing person and then of course it makes every normal person feel like WOAH- my face sure is blotchy! Even though that exact cover person has a blotchy face too, they just are photoshopped. So after my internal deliberation...I decided that's retarded. Even though I think I wouldn't mind doing it for something hanging on my WALL- why give in to the industry on my blog and possibly make someone think, "Wow her face sure is nice" when in reality, it's quite acne-infected. Don't get me wrong, I am happy with myself and I can tell you I am definitley working on the zit issue, I want them GONE! But the point is...I'm not going to be fake and look like I don't really look just to let others believe I have this perfect face. Not to say it'd be perfect without zits. You know what I mean. Right? Anyway. I'm pretty excited about my maxi skirt.
