Description

Made using Vogue 8363 but shortened, of a divine rust-red wool/silk mix I bought during our trip to Japan. The skirt is fully lined with polyester acetate, closes with an invisible zip and I covered the button with the same fabric using one of those kits in the haberdashery section. The seams are Hong Kong bound with bias cut strips of cotton, and the hem is finished with a slightly wider bias cut tape of the same cotton.
Also with a review of this pattern on my blog here

Material Notes

wool/silk mix, acetate lining, bias cut strips of cotton for HongKong seaming and hem-tape, invisible zip, self-fabric covered button

    Looks definitely like something I would like to wear! Funny cat, did you paste that huge ball of wool in?
