Gwyneth Knock-off


Back when Etsy had Alchemy, there were numerous requests for a copy of a cute little mini skirt that Gwyneth Paltrow wore on the show Glee.  I had the brilliant idea of taking on 3 orders for this skirt, all nearly around the same time. It almost drove me crazy, and let me tell you, if I had charged by the hour, I would have been a much richer woman. Alas, the lesson was learned the hard way, but I have to say I am very proud of myself for making such a convincing copy. Especially given that the original is made out of wool, and my version was a linen blend that I flatlined to a sturdier fabric to give it a “heavier” look. There are 2 different finished skirt pics, one was made a bit longer as requested. What do you think?
