So, my doctor said “No more pants for you, girl. You’ll have to wear skirts” and i panicked because it’s not winter but it’s not summer yet, and all the skirts I have are part of summer dresses.
I rushed to find a simple but effective skirt pattern and I found the lovely Helena Skirt.
After wondering a bit if the fabric I had would be suitable for a skirt (I didn’t want to end up with one of those huge circles right on my bottom), I decided it was ok.
For some reason I chose not to make automatic buttonholes, because I was not sure of the result.
I then opted for handmade ones, which turned out really naif :D (they are covered by the buttons, anyway)
(sorry for the wrinkled fabric)
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
