I wanted a new mini to go with the way too many pairs of leggings I just bought. Now that I've spent all my money on leggings I had to check out the clearance rack at the fabric store. I grabbed a yard of this great navy blue suede, cut a nice rectangle out (hips + 10" by 16"). I created a short paper bag waistband with some 1" wide elastic. This seemed pretty boring to me so I added some fun, random horizontal lines near the hem in a few different color threads. Still too boring so I added some puffy patch pockets to the front. I figured this was just enough texture to create a super fun mini skirt.
