So today my offering is a classic checked wool skirt, lined with an invisible zip. The fabric is from my friend who does house clearance and the satin lining is left over from the wedding waistcoat from White tree fabrics.
The pattern is a Simplicity jiffy vintage one that I have used many times in the past but still holds true today.
I purchased (gulp!) a gorgeous jumper in the Summer Boden sale for £20.00 the week I was left unattended to go with it. I had to make the skirt in order to allow myself to own a mustard coloured jumper.
My Autumn/winter wardrobe is building up nicely which is good because I did ditch quite a lot of old clothes in that big clear out. Jo x
