I wrestled with V9668 for ten million hours, then finally gave up, unpicked the skirt, and made myself a nice, versatile work-appropriate gray skirt instead. Cotton/poly/rayon suiting blend from Joann’s with a subtle check pattern. I think I need to shorten the skirt pattern by another inch or two, but I’m loving this and will make more in the future! Probably in a thicker fabric, and use horsehair in the hem to give the skirt some definition.
Cowl is the Burberry inspired cowl pattern (Ravelry link) in Knit Picks Cadena, Brook colorway.
