Chiffon Maxi Skirt

I wondered on to Melissa Esplin's blog via Pinterest (of course) and I found this neat tutorial.
I bought some chiffon fabric at DI for $3 a while ago and was wondering what I would do with it until I saw this.

I've never tried maxi skirts before.
They kind of scare me, to be honest.
I always thought it was a tall person thing,
and I am, uh, short.
A whooping 5'2"

But I wanted to give it a try.
I'm really sorry about my pictures haha. I am not photogenic. 

I used this tutorial to make this super cute chiffon maxi skirt!

Mint Scallops

I am so excited to finally show off this skirt! I have been working on it for so long and I just love the way it turned out. 

I first saw the mint scalloped skirt here. I love the color mint and I love scallops, so when I found this fabric, I knew what I would do with it right away.

I didn't even notice that she had a tutorial so I went ahead and did it without instructions, just out of my imagination and it actually turned out good, but unfortunately, I cut the skirt too small so it wasn't going to fit my hips.

I left the skirt alone for a while and then attempted it again using her tutorial (which turned out to be the exact same technique I had come up with! yay me!)

It is seriously so cute. I want to scallop my whole closet. okay, maybe not, but it's such an adorable skirt! I am so happy I can finally wear it, I've been waiting for ever to finish it and wear it.
