Another project in my quest for a me-made placement wardrobe – the pencil skirt from Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing! I sewed it up in a gorgeous chocolate-coloured wool that belonged to my great-aunt.
This pattern came together so quickly and easily; I absolutely love how it turned out! The style is very flattering, too – I’m so pleased to have such a chic and elegant skirt to wear to placement 🙂 I also added a few extra vintage touches: bias bound seams and a lace trim on the hem – I think it’s little touches like this which make all the difference!
Read all about it and see more photos here on my blog!
Until next time,
