“You know, you used to look great in a mini.”
Hands up if you remember that! It’s likely only Australians would. I may have said “Short skirts are back” in the lunch room at school the first time I wore this skirt and the whole room responded with the ad. Good advertising… well is it?? What was the ad for again?
Anyway, back to the skirt. I picked up a very scant remnant of this cool, green, wool blend fabric from The Fabric Store with plans to make it into a short skirt. There wasn’t much fabric to make anything else with it – all 70cms of it.
Vogue 1247 is an easy, well fitted pattern for a simple skirt like this and the pockets are handy.
Even though this is a wool fabric, and it doesn’t feel ideal agains the skin, I didn’t line the skirt. I don’t plan on wearing it without thick tights and it doesn’t stick to them either.
I really like this skirt, even though it’s green and short – both things that I’m not that keen on these day – I’ve already worn it twice just like pictured and anticipate it will get more wear this winter.
