I Heart Wool

I pulled out one of my favorite wool pencil skirts to wear this week, made using Simplicity 4047.  This skirt makes me want to sew up a bunch of blouses to match.

The wool is what was leftover from my construction of Butterick 5281.

I love when I can squeeze two projects out of one length of wool!  It makes me think I am getting away with something . . .

And I have finished my new wool coat!  While it is not vintage, per se, it definitely has that feel, so I thought I would share it with you.

As always, more pictures may be found over at Lilacs & Lace.

I adore sewing and knitting, mostly vintage or vintage-inspired patterns.
