The spring is about cleaning and re-making your own style. Use these do-it-yourself projects to update your closet just in time for the flowers to bloom. Skirts and tank tops are always on point, and they don't have to have a floral print! This list has a couple different skirts to try out, plus a bralette for under that loose tank. Make it all by hand and be in control of your own style this season.
