I love being a woman. I love dressing like a lady. I also am notoriously frugal in my spending. Next week I'll be showing what I wear during the week and letting you know how cheap I really am with the cost of each outfit. I hope you enjoy!
Yesterday afternoon I dug this fine navy wool out of the stash, along with some vintage lace and sewed up a very quick, very easy a-line skirt from an old Butterick pattern. I have used it so many times and love its versatility. This skirt I made to fall right below my knee.
The wool was leftover from the boys Easter suits a few years ago and the lace was given to me by my Grandma so this was a free skirt. Even the binding and zipper were given to me. I love it when folks clear out their parents or grandparents sewing stashes and pass the goodness my way!
