Description

I had two hours, a little piece of african wax and this wool fabric so I made a skirt from the last Tendance Couture magazine (Simplicity patterns). Easy and fits nicely but I’m still not sure about the fabric choice, I can’t decide if I find it retro or just old. I still like it and will be sewing this pattern again.

    Ok you convinced me, I’ll were it. And I’ll try it with a black or brown top too (I must sew one know !) Thanks a lot…

    I like your skirt, but I don’t really like it with the blue top… I would wear it with a black outfit: top and tights. It would feel “burberry like” !
