A crimson faux suede midi skirt with welt pockets at the front and at the back based on burdastyle pattern no 121 page 8.
I always ad welt pockets at the front of my skirts after a succseful experience I had with a dress I bought in Marks a Spencer (cost 20euros on sales).
Faux suede sense on the body is hot and sweaty under the weather of Patras but due to petroleum prices and the fact that i ride a vespa and uneployment that have restricted my walking etc I decided to give faux suede a chance after 20 years almost.The fabric cost me 3 euros and i bought it from a local store newly opened by a handsome young man who has bargains lying against one of his walls.
Initially my ideal was something cinamon but I got used to this glamorous too.
I aspire to sew a matcing jacket too.
