DIY box pleat Black And White Striped Skirt And Behind The Seams Pics

Hello! I’m totally in love with the box pleat skirt trending right now. I first saw this look on my favorite inspirational site Pinterest and then I ran across this Gucci box pleat skirt on Saks website for a whopping…….WAIT FOR IT……….. $1600, you got to be kidding me, I can make this skirt 99 times less in cost; after all, it’s not that complicated to put together and sew. So I strolled right into Hancock fabric, picked up about 2 yards of this lovely black and white striped fabric and went straight home to start on my skirt. I’m sure by looking at this pics below, you can see that I’m extremely happy with the finished results. .

diy leather signature bucket purse and wallet

I had so much fun making this purse because honestly, it was easy. I came across this tutorial and thought to myself, I have to try this out. It didn’t require much material or supplies, which was great. I went to our local Tandy’s Leather Store and purchased a yrd of leather and the metal snaps. It took me about 2 hours to actually put this purse together, so again, its a pretty simple project. BONUS: with the left over fabric, I made me a matching wallet :-).

Please view video below for the purse tutorial and click on the link for the wallet tutorial that I personally used.

Be blessed. I hope you all enjoy this post.
