This is my third iteration of the Simplicity 2451, and I promise to stop now! I used some denim with a pale pink accent in the warp. Or maybe it’s in the weft. Whatever – there’s some pink in there, best seen in the selvedge. Very subtle. The denim itself is soft as a baby’s bum and has a lovely, slightly crumpled texture. It’s denim made to slouch in, bought from Stone Fabrics. When I find decent denim, I like to snap some up. It’s harder to find than you’d imagine. Here’s a shot that gives a bit more detail:
Nothing left to say on this one. Nothing. I could probably make this skirt in my sleep, but it’s time to move on. Unless…
Fancy a poll? Which of my three Simplicity 2451s do you prefer? Vote below!
Oh, and in case you think the wellies in the first shot are an urbanite’s affectation, think again. This was Ella and myself on our morning walk in Epping Forest. I think Ella likes the autumn even more than me. So. Much. Mud. How I didn’t end up on my backside, I’ll never know.
