Burda 08/2012 #134

Poor sad january Christmas tree!
You won't believe this ...
I had a bit of the red wool left, just enough to make a little skirt with this Burda pattern from last August. I had it on the back of my mind, it's a good style for me and I had vague plans to sew summer skirts with it. I made a 38, added 4cm, an old age allowance, and lined it.
And ... I was so good at stash busting (part 1-2-3-4-5), that I had no contrasting fabric to make the facing with, so I took some purple Galactica. I now have huge boobs on my waistline!

Worn with my coat, it's very smart. Still too chic to wear in my everyday life, but dressed down with my Decemberists t-shirt and my Liberty Nike, it's ok. I may wear more skirts in the winter as a result.

There is some knitting going on here, it's rare enough to be mentioned, but it's a secret, you'll have to wait to hear more about it.
