I am joining in with the vintage pledge again this year over at Stitching Odyssey and Kestrel Makes. I really enjoyed it last year and found that I wore the items I made a lot and they really were part of my everyday wardrobe. I have got used to looking for bust size rather than the women's sizes we are aware of these days. You can join in or just take a peek by clicking on the tab in the sidebar.
I bought this pattern last Autumn. I was tempted because, what other skirt could you possibly want when you have all these styles in one packet?
I am short so I knew I would have to shorten the circle skirt. I have never made this style before so I was not sure if it would suit me either. I tried it out using a piece of black and mustard tweed hounds tooth which was gifted to me in a huge box of unwanted vintage craft goodies from a work colleague just recently. I accommodated the pattern piece by shortening my skirt before I cut it.
The waist was a great fit. I have worn it to work a few times and now my black cardigan is in circulation, it certainly has a perfect partner. I enjoyed a bit of experimental frayed applique with some ric rac along with some buttons.
A success with some free fabric. Win Win!
Thanks for looking. Jo xx
