To DIY or Not

To DIY or Not
I have been on an insane  sewing kick lately and wanted to see If my construction quality was improving.  What better way to do that than to have my husband guess which cost more.  We compared my Tibi skirt worn here which was $285 with this skirt made with an altered Butterick pattern B5285  which when I saw the fabric, reminded me of Roberto Cavalli where he will infuse animal print into a floral print.  He immediately said the print skirt.  Not sure if I believe him, he may have seen a piece of fabric on the floor and wanted to make me feel good 🙂 but I’ll roll with that answer because at $15.00 to make, how can you go wrong.

Top- Theyskens Theory
