On one of the blogs I read, Freshly Picked , I came accross the most adorable & easy DIY elastic waist skirt & am very much looking foward to getting started! Because my hips are so big, I have the hardest time finding this style of skirts that I can wear. Once you throw that elastic on, it automatically finds its way to my natural waist line, which then decreases the skirts length by about 3-5 inches. Boo! But now, I can pick the material AND the length! YAY! You should definitely check out This Project & this fabulous blog!
