Gingham Midi Skirt

Make #19
How I Styled It:
Sunnies: Franco Sarto
Striped Ruffled Blouse: Old
Watch: Michael Kors
Bag: Super Old (from my mom)

I love, love, love gingham prints (of all colors and sizes). I definitely don't discriminate! I just can't get enough. ;)


Making this skirt was pretty easy.  The only hitch was lining it.  Since this lovely fabric was pretty sheer, I decided to line it with a light cotton fabric (great for hot weather). I loved that adding the lining made the gingham print richer but hated applying it. 

Lining is certainly worth the hard work but it is not for the faint of heart! Love my new skirt nonetheless. This is my first gingham make but will not be the last! So, if you love gingham print as much as I do, stay tuned. ;)

  1. What a beautiful skirt! When I was a kid, my mom made a pink and white gingham dress for my cabbage patch doll and for myself...it had a white apron too :) It was so cute, your outfit brings back some fond memories :)

  2. This is super cute Rejina! I don't normally think of this kind of print as fashionable but you really pulled it off! I also love the length of the skirt. Did you use a pattern or free hand? Did you pleat or gather the waist?
