DIY Skirt Makeover

27 Nov

In high school, I loved both art and creative writing.  This means I pretty much sketched and wrote alllllll the time. Sometimes my doodling and writing ended up on my clothes.  I had a closet full of DIY customized clothing.  (Didn’t every creative high school outcast?)

The other day I made myself a few quick skirts.  I had enough of this dusty teal fabric to make two skirts, but who really wants two of the same exact garment?  Borrrrrring!  I decided to go all high-school-DIY on one of them and write all over it.  I always have a hard time deciding just what to write on my garments, though. I’m usually too self-critical to wear my my own words as an outfit, so I narrowed it down to two others’ words.  And, just like in high school, I couldn’t decide between a miniskirt of Bible quotes or Nirvana lyrics.

I ended up choosing Nirvana lyrics.

My new skirt covered in Nirvana lyrics.

“i think i’m dumb.”

I used Marvy markers for the script.  I haven’t washed it a million times yet, so I don’t know how well the markers hold up.  I’ve heard good things about Marvy markers, though.  I’m not too worried…..if the repeating “i think i’m dumb” words wash off eventually, I shouldn’t be too heartbroken.
