Skirt #2 in a series of self-drafted 50’s inspired skirts for daughter no2. This fabulous textured pistachio wool was bought from Rosenberg & Son at the sewing show in Birmingham in March. The pockets were inspired by a dress pattern from 1949. The skirt is fully lined in a matching cupro with a bound hem & waistband. There is more info on this skirt on my blog and a tutorial to make your own!
