20 out of 30

Dress: Collectif, cardigan & hair band: Primark, tights: C&A, shoes: Baha

Well, as I said yesterday, I spent my sunday in front of my sewing machine! I still have to do some hand stitches -blergh!- but as you might know me, this can take some time...

Here is what I finished already:

A pencil skirt from stretch wool I "inherited" from my aunt. She stopped sewing some years ago and handed me a bunch of fabrics 2 years ago, Finally used some of this, so I'm pretty pleased. I also like the outcome, unlike this horrible skirt:

Yes, I just hiked my dress up and the colours don't match. But what I would like to point out is some fitting issue. Do you see this bunch of fabric right in front of my crotch? No?

Now? I really liked the pattern in theory. It involves a tight top part with some flare lateron. The skirt has pockets. Very practical, if you ask me. But I don't see how I can make this work on my body. It's a pity for the fabric, but well, you win some, loose some...
