Today we have another Buy or DIY skirt for you! This time we’re showing you how you can make a trendy skirt perfect for summer for WAY less than retail price.
Our skirt pick of the day is a very fun neoprene skirt from Stylebop. Neoprene is a knit fabric, but stiff and thick, yet soft and voluminous. Another name for it is scuba knit. Think wetsuit gone classy! This skirt from Stylebop has inverse pleats which stand out and define it. We immediately knew which pattern to use because of those fantastic pleats!
