Description

My second Colette Beignet, this time in a rich caramel twill with teal Bemberg rayon lining. I really love this pattern, and I feel so confident and put-together wearing these skirts. Plus they’re so warm in the winter – love ’em!

P.S. – My top is a Renfrew. Yay for a fully handmade outfit!

    Super cute. I love those Beignet skirts, I’m just intimidated by all the buttonholes!! You are an inspiration, you look fantastic! And congrats on the all-you-made outfit!

      Thanks so much! The buttonholes were a piece of cake – I just used the automatic buttonhole on my machine. Sewing on the buttons was much more tedious. :)
