    Copy_1_of_copy_1_of_img_9473_listing

    I loved this pattern – Simplicity 2451 – so much that I made it twice in a row. One version is in a lovely mid-blue corduroy, and the other a much more work-friendly charcoal wool.

    This is the Colette Ginger skirt, made in a bright blue denim. The skirt feels quite 70s to me – not my usual style, but nice for a change!
