Outfit post - OOTD - Grey handmade skirt
Today's post is just an outfit! I went to work at the library all day today, so I was going for cute librarian! Did I win?
Cardigan: Alice and the Pirates
Shoes: Big W
This skirt is one I made back in 2009 (?) from one big old rectangle and a different waistband pattern.
The skirt is made of four box-pleats. So the skirt is made of a rectangle of length 3*hip measurement, and then folded into box pleats. There's a zipper at the side and it's all attached to a simple wide waistband that goes from my hips to my waist.
I got this fabric from a bizarre church sale where they were only selling fabric and patterns for super cheap. It's pinstripe suiting. I lined it with spots!
Here's a picture of me wearing it when I first made it!
It's also featured in my 3rd year recital poster. Enjoy!
In other news, my blouse that I'm making is progressing slowly. I'm using chiffon and it's a pain to sew!
