The Pintester Takes on a DIY Draped Skirt

I am not fashionable. I am not cute. I will never be either of those things. And yet… And yet… Guys, Pinterest is aspirational by nature, and so am I, turns out, because I saw this and thought I should definitely try it.

Ok, yeah, I didn’t have stretchy t-shirt material. And my piece of fabric was not long enough (especially considering how much bigger my butt is than hers). But really I was not aspirational enough to go buy a long piece of stretchy t-shirt material just to try to make a skirt out of it that might turn out looking like crumpled ass.

Instead of telling this story in words, I shall tell it in pictures… (I should tell you, though, that I don’t normally wear fuzzy owl pants and giant t-shirts with no bra in public, so I understand that this is going to look less cute than the tutorial by default, but I shall defend my stance by saying there was no way in hell I was going pantsless for a blog photoshoot.)

Umm… Tada? Not exactly the result I was hoping for, fuzzy pants and giant t-shirts aside. Will I ever be cute? Well, I have my moments (although not this one). Will I ever be fashionable? Definitely nope.

    *Hee hee* No worries! This kinda skirt-thing only works for models who look vaguely like Gwinneth Paltrow- in other words, this looks great on, uh, well, NO ONE REAL! LOL
