This is the skirt I whipped up on Thursday night - it was much much harder than I anticipated it would be without a pattern. I unpinned it so many times that I almost thought I should just give up and make the tried and true pencil skirt (and yes I do have enough to make one of those too!!). But my persistency paid off and the skirt turned out much prettier than I thought it would.
I made it out of some of the fabric I thrifted a while ago and I'm really loving the colour. I'm having a bit of a thing for navy at the moment and I've already dreamed up millions of outfits with this skirt in mind!! The fabric also has some light pinstripes which makes it even more cute. I was thinking about adding some small pockets that fasten with little ribbons but I'm worried that will make it too cute if you know what I mean.
I wore the skirt to work yesterday and had many a compliment which is always nice - my favourite one was when a friend told me I looked very 50's in it which made me smile!! The cardi is a recent thrift find and is probably going to become one of my favourites - its so versatile and I love the little buttons up the front.
Any way - today is the day we vote in our elections, and while its not as important in the grand scheme of things to the world, its very important to those who live here. Results are out tonight and I'm sure we will all be on the edge of our seats - election parties tonight anyone? I think I've been invited to three - decisions decisions...
Have a great weekend everyone,
