Description

I found the fabric for this skirt in a charity shop. Its 100% wool and like a blanket which is perfect for the freezing weather in London right now! The pattern is self drafted but although my last black pencil skirt fitted perfectly, this one came up slightly larger. I didn’t really take into consideration that the fabric might behave differently. It has a back vent and the skirt is fully lined.

More pictures and details how I lined the vent, over at ooobop
