Inspired by sunnilj9’s post I decided to finally post my version of the Linda.
I made it over two years ago. I had made the size according to my measurements and consequently it was way too big. I put it away for a while and didn’t wear it often, because it hit at an unfortunate height for my rather wide hips.
About 2 months ago took it out again and finally got around to narrow it (I had hesitated because it is fully lined). In the process the button I had especially made the skirt for(!) unfortunately got lost… However, I found a nice vintage mother-of-pearl button in my grandma’s button collection. Now the skirt is perfect and I’ve already worn it several times. It’s made of stretch wool and therefore perfect in cold weather like now!
Stretch wool, polyester lining
