easy peasy, cute little button-up pockets!
A while ago, my friend sold me this skirt which is a replica of Pngelic Pretty's Milky-chan of the Fawn Skirt. It was missing some details though, so I decided to treat it as a blank canvas for my own personal alterations! so I'm doing a series of tutorials to show you how to do this yourself.
This tutorial is based on others I have seen, but is modified to be even easier and cuter!
