Description

This skirt is a slight variation on the A-line mini skirt from December 2010 issue of Burda Style Mag.
It is made in a gorgeous wool blend, 95% wool, 5% polyester and is so soft and snuggly. The fabric is twill-backed which meant no lining…. hoorah!

    Nice job on the stripes, I know how much patience you need for doing that.

      Thank you Loulourosa, though I do think there was a little bit of luck involved! ;-)

    Lovely skirt!! I like the way that you have “tranfered” the waist darts to the sides of the skirt, it makes is special!!!

      Thank you Ralf. I think it helps when one works with lovely fabric too. It is really lovely quality and a dream to work with. x

    Sweet, isn’t it itchy on your bottom though? I hate wool against my skin.

      lol! Not at all… its really soft on the outside and its got a smooth twill backing. I did worry about it riding up but I wore it today and it behaved perfectly! Mind you I am wearing 60 dernier tights… its freezing in London!
