Gold Sequin Pattern Mini Skirt


I was drawn to this fabric at local Joann, but not sure how to use it… so I passed actually buying the fabric several times.
However, I couldn’t stop being attracted to it, and when I found the same bolt on the clearance rack for half price, I had to snatch it. (I’m a sucker for good deals…)
The fabric pattern is not printed but woven in, so it really doesn’t look cheap.  The texture sort of reminds me of that of Obi (waist tie for kimono) fabric.


I used Simplicity2451, one of my favorite patterns for my quick projects.  It has four pleats in front, shaped waist yoke, and side pockets.  The pattern does not require lining, but I might add it later because seam allowances of this particular fabric are a bit scratchy against my bare skin.


I think this skirt could be a nice accent in casual outfits and with natural materials like wool or linen…
Or who knows, I might go all out for holiday parties and dress it up to create a really eye-catching outfit…! ;)

  5. A combination of these various treatments can greatly improve the
    overall aesthetics of your teeth and smile. Frequently a
    pearly smile takes the focus away from the lines around out mouth and
    gives you an extra young appearance. So it seems logical that, if you are looking
    for a good cosmetic dentist Miami is the place to head to.
