For this skirt I used an original vintage pattern from the 70’s. The simple but elegant shape even reminds me of the 20’s and 30’s. I chose a grey-blue cotton that is usually used for suits. For the hemline I added a grey laceband inside. I like the high waist and the pockets so much, the same like the color of the fabric. I wore this skirt visiting a concert from “Florence and the Maschine” in march – so there the name comes from. In the pictures with me I wear a blouse of my favorite designer “Lena Hoschek”. On the doll you can see I black blouse that I got from thrifting – until I did a lot of alterations the blouse was a dress.
