This is a skirt made using Marie Skirt pattern, which was very easy to sew. Even though I had some issues fitting the facing of the belt, given that it was too big to match the belt itself (did anyone else had this problem as well, or was it just me, by the way?), so I kind of, er, cut it, it came about easily, and I like the result. It has a kind of weird line (tulip line, that is), so I guess it’s not as flattering as one would want it to be, but it does makes a statement and is interesting and sweet.

I used a fabric I found on sale (just 5 euros, about $5, per meter), which is 50% wool and 50% acetate, with a little hold. A suited combination for springtime, I’d say.
