Another Day, Another Style...


So here is my latest love. Not my usual style and not a particularly original design, it's not haute couture, and dear old Vivienne Westwood, needn't get twitchy, but I love it mostly because I made this skirt from scratch, from the blank peice of paper, to the outfit I wore to work today. Did i say that I love it! It's comfortable, it's pretty, it's summery, it was cheap to make, and it's just what I wanted. But best of all ..


The lining! I was going to sew a boring old black lining as being broderanglaise it's a bit transparent! But then I found some black netting, and some red organza which has been in my stash for ages .. oh such delight!

A skirt...I thought so, and hoped so! ;o) It is simply gorgeous, Julia. The a-line styling is so flattering and I love the fabrics selected. The extra red with the lining makes it sizzle--oh, la, la!! I so wish I more clever at sewing clothing after seeing this. Happy weekend, my friend ((HUGS))

I think that skirts sums you up perfectly...A quite normal exterior but a not so normal, sassy if not sexy interior ;o)

just found this one Julia... must have missed it over summer.

You just have to get a range of patterns sorted for sale! I'd buy this one!
