DIY Skirt

 Here is a simple outfit that I threw together in 15 minutes and that includes my skirt DIY!

I bought this long maxi skirt about a year ago from the thrift store with the intention of taking it in.
The skirt was too big but I liked the floral pattern and the classic black and white colors.
Well a year passes and I never took it in, go figure!
I decided I would make the skirt into a sarong/wrap skirt situation. 
It's not really a permanent DIY but just incase someone is in a rush I'll give you the instructions anyways!

To start with the skirt had about 6 inches of extra room in the waist.
I cut the skirt from the waist to the hem vertically on one side.
I tied the fabric at the top and safety pined it together from beneath as far down as desired.
It ended up having a slightly ruffled look on the side that I really liked.
Since this is held together by a knot, safety pins and a prayer I would suggest wearing a slip underneath!
My favorite slip to use is the Honey Slip it comes in a buttery soft material and hides straps and things for a cleaner look.
You can click the link I provided to check it out! 
I'll definitely have an entire blogpost dedicated to how I wear my Honey Slip!
