Appliqué skirt

I have a hard time shopping at Anthropologie because everything is expensive (in my book) and I know I can make some of the things myself, so I try to limit my shopping to items that I KNOW I can’t make myself like sweaters, lacy things or items with LOTS detail or embroidery.

Which brings me to this skirt, something I saw and really liked and decided to try and copy. Of course, I wasn’t able to copy the bird embroidery (which is amazing) but I was able to add the appliqués.

Since I used fabric remnants, the total cost of this skirt was probably $3. Just saved $150! Still, if I had the money I would have bought the Anthro skirt.

 

Anthropologie version (so freaking awesome)

 

 

My version. Simpler and made with fabric remnants. The belt I bought in Costa Rica.
