Okay so here's how it went down: I used an old t-shirt that I rarely wear and cut it off at the smallest part of my waist. Then I sewed on the skirt (which was the material I bought yesterday). I made the yellow waist band to cover the area where the top and skirt meet just to make it look a little more clean. The band is actually... (are you ready for this?) sleeves off of a long-sleeved jersey knit T that I had and never wore. Boo yeah! Then I added the ruffle down the side of the top. That's probably my favorite part!
Total cost? $0.75. Domination.
