Alexis made from a thrifted wool skirt (see last pic). I made a few changes. I removed the pocket, moved the pleats to the other side, and did the seam by the pleats a bit differently. It’s also fully lined.
This is the first piece for the wardrobe I am going to build for myself. As a resolution for this year, I decided to try and make pieces I would not only wear, but that could be mixed and matched. This way I know I’ll get use out of them!
See more on my blog.
thrifted wool skirt, reused the zipper and lining- the only thing I had to use otherwise was a hook and eye.
The shoes are Payless :)
