Me Made: Mint Pencil Skirt

The other day I was in one of those "I need to make something for myself right now that will make me feel pretty" moods. Do you ever get that mood? (Give into it; awesome things happen!) Anyway, that mood produced a mint pencil skirt.
I used a Robert Kaufman fabric (I think; I cut the side off and can't remember) that a friend let me buy cheap. It's a beautiful fabric. It has a subtle, small pattern which almost makes it look solid. Close up, the colors are probably emerald and white, from far away it looks mint!
I paired it with this chambray shirt I made. Instead of having a slit or pleat in the back, I added a little trumpet piece. Isn't it elegant? I love it, and I'll have a tutorial ready for you on Friday!
 Yummy: mint, chambray, and coral pink.
