Teal Box-Pleat Skirt

These box pleat skirts are seriously my favorites.  I will be making a tutorial soon.  I just need to find another fabric perfect for one. The fabric is a brocade that I used a while ago when I made a pencil-dress.  The best part about this skirt is that, like Sam’s, IT HAS POCKETS!  You…

Teal Tribal Print!!

This fabric took me FOREVER to figure out what is wanted to be.  I was back and forth between having a more blouse-y top like my Workin’ Knit dress, my other tribal knit dress, OR what it turned out to be.  What finally helped me make a decision was that I really wanted sleeves because…
