…..vintage scraps!

And I have put them onto this …

My 2nd ever A line skirt, but this time, with lining!  Ooooooh!  Aaaaaaaah!

I was so inpired by the ladies making their skirts last Saturday, that I wanted to make one for myself. 
I dug out a remnant of navy wool and some shiney stuff I’ve had forever for the lining!

This was made using the same bespoke method we used on Saturday, drafting our own pattern from our measurements.

I put the zip in the side of the skirt with a wee button hole fastener.   

I was amazed at how easy it was to put lining into it (call me old-fashioned but I much prefer a lined skirt!). 

Sorry about the naff pics!  Will try to get some better ones when I can borrow another camera.

I had this made in an afternoon, and was so excited that I got another one cut out. But I will need a bit more courage to wear it in public!

I’m going to have to give my inner-hippy some serious talking to to stride out in this one!
