DIY: exposed zipper skirt


I absolutely love DIY projects. During the school semester it is tough to start a project, let alone complete  it due to time. But I hope come summer, I can accomplish some projects on my growing list.
With the few days I had off for Easter break, I managed to complete a DIY I have been wanting to do since February: an exposed zipper skirt.
I love the look of these skirts, especially when the zipper is in the back, because it reminds me of a in the front, par-tay in the back. Of course I could have easily bought the skirt from any number of  retailers (for example, Torrid has a similar one for $49), but where's the fun in that?

In addition, the total cost of this DIY came out to:
Forever 21 bandage skirt: $9.80
Thread: $1.79
Zipper: $5.49         
Total: $ 17.08

 The savings will go to funding my Starbucks/Red Mango/Shoe/Shopping habit.
