DIY Sew: Neon Mesh Skirt

I know I'm months, even seasons behind on the neon trend; but hey style is personal right? I can wear what I want when I want.  A few weeks ago I set out to my favorite fabric store GEM and to my sad surprise the store was closing, the silver lining was the closeout sale.  I came across some neon mesh fabric, I think it was $2 a yard, I figured it was a bit unconventional but it would do the trick for the neon skirt I've been wanting to make.  Of course there are challenges with mesh... it's see through, ahh! I quickly realized it'd be easy to double up on the fabric and I could either create a lining, wear a slip, or in the case above slip on over a bodycon dress.

Here's how I made it:
