Whenever I go to Unique, my first stop is the fabric section. Material can be expensive, so I stock up every time I go. My first inclination is to look for fabric with prints, but on this day, this cappuccino colored fabric caught my eye. I knew it would make the perfect versatile skirt for the Spring/Summer season. It was only $3.99 and it was 25% off Thursday, so it only cost $3.00.
The process is always the same. I used my chalk and twine as a protractor
to mark the hem line. Cut the waist line and hem line.
Cut a 4 inch waist band and pinned it to the skirt.
After attaching the waistband, I decided to put in a zipper.
Marked where it will end, cut straight down, pinned and sewed on the zipper.

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!
I felt like a Cappuccino Mocha Mami.
Chocolate with a little cream and foamed milk on top!
