Lest you all start thinking that I have my head back in the 1800's and early 1900's of sewing historically-inspired gowns and aprons, I do sew 21st century clothing. =)
I finished this skirt this morning, using Simplicity pattern #3841.
I just love the "sewn in" pleats of this skirt, and the fun, mid to upper-calf length! It was quick and easy to put together, and the poplin fabric (thanks to a red-tag clearance sale at JoAnn's!) is very forgiving and easy to work with, not to mention wonderful to wear.
The shoes came from a grocery chain out east, and I fell in love with their old-fashioned flair! And believe it or not, the leather purse came from a thrift store! An older friend of mine out east had one of a similar fashion, and I thought that it looked a little "grown-up-ish" but not to much for a young woman going on 25 in a couple months... =)
