Can I say it's 'Plaidtastic' or is That too Cheesy?











Ah, summertime!! I don't like hot summers. I prefer the colder seasons. But today was perfect! Not too hot, a lovely breeze blowing. I went to a picnic, with family and friends. A few things that I like about Summer: Picnics and wearing more skirts like this!:)
I actually bought fabric to make this (no, it's not a table cloth, or curtains!:):)) I'd been wanting to make something like this ever since I saw a similar skirt in a Forever 21 store. It was more green than this, and also more expensive! That was more than a year ago, and it's been on my mind ever since! When I saw this fabric, I knew what I would make!! Finished in about three hours! I love it! How bout you??(just say yes):)

Wearing tee-shirt from WalMart, and vintage 10 commandments bracelet from my Mom. (it's missing the 4th commandment:):))
