New skirt


I've actually finished something! To be truthful it's something I started before I ventured into the wardrobe project, but as it is a 40's skirt, it fits anywy. It's an A-line wool skirt that I very nearly finished in February, but then I had just the hemming left. It's funny how often the hemming slows me down... But now, in time for colder weather, I finally took the last stitches on it. And as I've spent the last few days feeling a bit under the weather due to a cold, I really felt the need to put on some lipstick and feel a bit pretty.










The sweater is from Rocket Originals. I have forgotten where I got the shoes- I've had them for years.

Va-va-va-voom! This outfit looks fantastic on you. I like to do my hand sewing when watching some silly TV movie that doesn't require a lot of attention. A two-hour movie provides a lot of time for hand sewing.
