Green green grass - the slit skirt

Such a simple project, and so effective!

I have followed, broadly, pattern 105 in Burda Style Magazine 09/2013.

I purchased the September issue abroad, whilst on holidays & under the August hot burning sun.

The skirt has inspired me and I saw it straight away, made from the English tweed and photographed whilst walking in the ever green English parks.

I quite liked the idea of polka dot tights, and “borrowed” it straight away.

Worn with baby blue angora turtle neck jumper, Joules khaki resin beads, Zara boots and Jones Bootmakers satchel bag.

      It doesn’t feel like winter, does it?!

    great skirt! I’ve been eyeing ever since I got my magazine…. but I’m a little bit worried about the slit…. I don’t think a skirt like this would be work appropriate?
