my granny skirt

I made this skirt around the end of October, and it’s possibly my favourite make from the entire year!

I bought this fabric while I was in London and this skirt is exactly what I envisioned to make with it. I used one of my tried-and-true patterns from December 2010 issue of Burda – if you’re looking for a fitted, high waisted skirt this is your pattern! It’s such a universally flattering shape, I really couldn’t recommend it more.

Despite making this pattern several times before I did managed to cut it too short by accident, so in order to save the garment I had to add a strip of fabric around the hem. It turned out that I really like the look of this hem band! You gotta love lucky accidents sometimes :D

If you wanna read more about it and see more pictures, you can head on to my (kinda) brand new blog ! I hope you’ll like it :)

    I’m in love with this skirt! I’ve spotted a similar fabric and I can’t decide what to do with it. I’m now convinced that a mini skirt is the best choice :-)

      Yes, I will fully support that idea! :D Winter is perfect time for mini skirts, when you can pair them with thick tights and boots.
