It has finally warmed up enough to wear skirts again yay!!! I was starting to feel that my wardrobe was being so confined to pants and jeans!
Anyways, this is a skirt that I sewed this fall. I bought the material for $4.00 this summer and although I wasn't quite sure what I was going to make with it, I knew I had to have it. The material is corduroy, which I think is perfect for fall/winter. While the corduroy is ultra modern, the patterned dainty, little roses add that extra bit of antiquity which I love.
The design of the skirt was inspred by a skirt from Steven Alan's fall collection. While I couldn't find the pattern I wanted, I decided to design the skirt by combining two completley different patterns (Burda 7741 and Simplicity 2656) . I think it turned out quite nice and it fits perfectly!!!
I am sure that I will get many wears out of this great skirt!!
I am a prairie girl who loves gardening, sewing, traveling, champagne, city centers, remote locations and of course fashion. Since our traveling lifestyle doesn't always allow me to live in global fashion centers, this blog is a way for me to keep in touch the latest trends and document my favorite things! Enjoy
