So, I decided to Sew With A Plan for the first time ever in my life, and this skirt was part of the plan! It fit perfectly onto the remainder of wool that I had earmarked for trousers, and I thought, “Why not a skirt, too?” It’s a perfectly weird shade of green – one of my favourites!
I underlined and lined the skirt – a little bit more than was suggested by the instructions – and I added a 4cm deep waistband.
Please see my blog for more details.
