We’d had this old blazer/shirt lying around for as long as I can remember, so I made myself a skirt! I like how the pockets are so low on the skirt, ‘cos that’s how the shirt was. I’ve always adored this fabric & I’m so glad I get to wear it, now. The hardest part of making this as the hips, trying not to have them balloon out! Made w/o a pattern.
An old shirt of my grandma’s.
Grandma for the shirt
