last minute skirts

Sometimes I'm a last-minute person and in the moments before I'm supposed to have Thai food with some dear friends, I whip up a pencil skirt out of that knit fabric I bought months ago.

And then I wonder why I am constantly running late.

I think it's because I do things like this-- try to fit things into the margin of my day. Twenty minutes before I need to be somewhere? Sure, I'll fit in laundry or a blog post or some gardening or a knit skirt diy. It's a sickness, people, really a sickness, and I'm sure my friends and family are tired of it causing me to run late everywhere.

But back to the skirt-- I have been meaning to make this for months, so when the perfect hour of free time presented itself, I decided it was going to happen. And I'm pretty pleased with my rushed results.

Would you guys be interested in a diy?
