I knew I wanted to make some winter clothes. And being the impatient girl that I am, I ended up at this very obscure discount fabric warehouse that is close to my work. I have only been there once before and last time I wasn't happy with the results of my trip. Out of desperation I gave it one more try. This time I am happy that I did :)
I found this wool for $5 a yard. It's not the most luxurious wool out there, but it has these great bits of color woven into it. I saw it and thought "skirt!" Sometimes fabric speaks to me (no, I don't hear voices or anything).
As I was meandering around the store looking for a suitable lining, I came across this silk drapery fabric for $3 a yard. I loved the pattern and I thought the summery floral would make a nice contrast to the wintery wool. I began to imagine the silk lining peeking out below the wool.
This skirt is a half-circle skirt, which I think is a flattering shape on most people. A full-circle may look too bulky in wool.
Thanks for visiting :)
