Whipped up in the nick of time for a holiday party last weekend, using my tried & trued Burda 8155. Second time using a lined back vent (made a couple mods to Sunni’s tutorial), and am totally addicted to them. And to this cheery color combo of blue-green wool and crimson lining.

    B8155 is my ultimate favourite skirt pattern – I love yours! It rocks out with that awesome top you’re wearing too.

    This is a HIT! Love it Darl – just love it. The fact you did the crimson lining too – this I adore!! You look so nicely turned out… those shoes, and the blouse is divine! xx

    PS – I am loving the way your hair is looking right now – suits you no end x

      Thanks! One bad thing about the lining… it’s noisy. Just had to use it, though. And thanks for the hairstyle vote :) I can never manage to keep it one way for long.
