Happy New Year!!


I hadn't planned to make this skirt in this fabric but it just happened that way. The fabric is a wool/poly blend I bought at Lincraft in Brisbane some years ago on a closing down sale. It must have been cheap because I bought a lot of it. I've already made Grant two pairs of pants from this fabric and I still have enough left to make the dress I originally planned. You probably can't tell, but the pinstripe is lavender and matches the skirt and jacket I made last week.
This is BWOF 02-11-103 and the magic is in the back view. I like the darts and the godet. I really love this skirt, but only time will tell if it's a practical work skirt or if I end up walking like Mortisha Addams.
I tried it with the broderie anglaise blouse I made recently that I wasn't sure if I should include in my SWAP. I quite like the girliness of the blouse with the pinstripes.
As much as I'd like to get started on the dress, I really need to do some housework. There must be three dogs worth of hair on the living room floor and it's back to work tomorrow.

That pattern is perfect for your striped skirt! I love the back details. It looks really good with the blouse.
