Yeah, I made another one. So shoot me! This version is going to get Worn. To. Death. It’s in black wool crepe. I added 2.5 inches to the length of version C and omitted the pockets. I’ve learnt the hard way that the drape of crepe doesn’t work well with pockets – they just become baggy.
I lined the skirt in black and white polka dot satin. Yum, yum, double yum! The hem is turned over twice and loosely hand sewn. I didn’t press the hem as I didn’t want to press unsightly ridges in my fabric.
I’m wearing this with my Breton top. It’s a good old top, this one. It doesn’t come out all the time, but certainly fills a gap when needed. At the time of construction I berated myself about some lack of perfection, but now I think, Seriously, what? Take a chill pill, girlfriend.
Three skirts in, I wonder how many more renditions of the Hollyburn skirt I can make. What’s your record for repeat uses of a pattern?
