I made a skirt! I bought the fabric yesterday and finished this morning, all during Kaylee’s naps, that is how easy the skirt is! It is literally made from 4 rectangles plus a zipper and unlined. I found this shimmering 90%poly 10% wool blend in hancock and got 1/2 a yard, and wasted nothing!
Paired with leather oxford and tan coat, i got myself a nice outfit
I especially love the exposed metal zipper. Hubby had a pair of shorts of the same color, so the zipper went well with the fabric:

It is inspired by what i found on pinterest:
Not quite the same but hey, mine costed me less than 5 bucks in material. I want to make a tan, notch collared jacket from camel hair and burda pattern, making almost an exact knock off of the look. But I am not sure if I will have the time, since I have to go back to work soon.
On the other hand, I took these pictures myself with auto timer, and had the darnest time making it focus! I gave up at the end. It is hard taking photos for your blog without a photobitch!
Lastly, a quick poll — do you think this skirt is too short to wear to work? I work as an engineer, so people are mostly in casual wear, except me! But my skirts are usually within 2-3 inches above my knee. Not sure if this is too much shortness but I really want to wear it!
