Wowowow, this month has flew by! It’s been a big month of growth for me – I hit 100 followers on Instagram at the beginning of January but by the end I had just over 400! It blows my mind that every time I post something, there are around 400 people that get to see what I put into the world 🌎. Thank you so much for your support!
What I made this month:
Fabric: red gingham cotton from Joann Fabrics
Time: 2 hours
Thoughts: My first midi skirt, love the fun notch on the waistband!
Would I make again? YES! So many fabrics would go well with this skirt 😍
