What I wore to church

When I walked into a local opp shop (thrift store / charity shop) and saw this beautiful floral curtain for $2 I fell in love with it and immediately knew I had to make a skirt out of it. So I did! It's a decor weight fabric (with thermal backing) so it stands out a little bit, which I love. I have plenty of shoes, tops and cardigans in olive green, grey, deep pink, and brown, so I can mix and match a variety of outfits, but here's how I styled it the first time I wore it. I call it my skirtain (curtain skirt), ha!
