Not for the office

I love the shape of this 4 gore skirt with its godet hem from BWOF 11/2008 (its no.110). I get the feeling that the godets on mine are not fluttering the way should. Maybe the fabric choice is a bit heavy. The form hugging shape of the skirt makes it challenging to walk and move around. Try walking keeping you knees together and you’ll get the idea. Its a great little skirt to go out in but I certainly won’t be wearing it to the office. If I were to make it again I think I’d use a light weight fabric with a bit of stretch.

Material Notes

Wool blend




Garment Type

    it’s so annoying when you’ve got something so lovely and it’s difficult to wear. Hope you manage to wear it out loads.

    Feminine and delicate… I really like it! I hope you’ll wear it a lot. It’s funny – the other day I was thinking of making the same skirt myself :-).
