Peek-a-Boo

As some of you may know, I am one of the co-founders of www.prettygirlssew.com.  It’s a group that 5 women started last May and it’s such an amazing and inspiring group to be apart of.  Well, my love for the group is really expressed in this outfit of the day (OOTD).

I was inspired to pull together this outfit by the beautiful Sheryl Luke of www.walkinwonderland.com.  Her style to me is flawlessly chic.  The skirt that she wore is pictured below was purchased from Express.  And as you all know, Express definitely has some high prices.  The cheapest I seen this skirt is $84.69 on Asos.

Comment below and let me know what you think.  I love to hear from you.  If you made a tee, what would it say?  I want to make another, give me some ideas!

  1. I absolutely love that skirt. I saw a picture of that skirt and have it saved on my phone because I planned on making it. You have inspired me to make the skirt. If I were to make a t-shirt right now it would say your focus determines your reality.

    • AMAZING!! Do make one. It’s definitely a head turner. I do plan on making a video on this skirt because the pattern I used does need a slight adjustment to make this type of skirt wearable. If you do make it, be sure to add another stripe or the mesh will be too high. Also, I love your quote!!
