A few weeks back, I posted a few pics about a leopard print skirt by Brooksbrothers. I was kind of thinking about which of the design ideas I like the most and the skirt was the one that seemed to be the subtlest way for me to use animal print and yet not be so obviously BOLD.
I have not been a fan of animal prints in the past, but I found this awesome piece of double knit leopard print at Fabric.com that I had been eyeing for a while. I finally decided a couple of days ago to give this print a shot. I knew I wanted to make a pencil skirt, but after trying some of the online tutorials for pencil skirts (google search) I realized that those patterns were not going to fill the bill for what I wanted in a fitted skirt (tutorial coming soon).
Since I've always wanted to have matching Mother-Daughter outfits, I decided to make matching skirts for me and my girls.
