    Step 1

    Well the skirt need a button and I don't have nothing like the other buttons, so I remember that my mother give to me 2 star buttons, one red and the other is navy blue or darker..
    And well you see how nice it look with the red..

    Then I found that I really don't like the long of the skirt, so I only cut out almost half of the skirt, and leave it seamless..

    Probably, I don't know yet, I'm going to put some lace like the apron, but I don't know yet.. It could be too girly for me..
