My "Anne" Skirt

Only one picture to share with you that my younger sister quickly took before heading to church yesterday morning.
As I mentioned in this post, I have long wanted to make a skirt like Anne's, and I think I got as close as I could with what I had. Yes, the 1909 “Beatrix” Skirt Pattern could have been used, but for practicality reasons and wanting to not sport a look of 100 years ago, I decided to use my basic a-line skirt pattern by lengthening it, making the hem fuller, adding a bias flounce, and 3 teensy-tiny pin tucks.

So paired with a top that was given to me, my vintage-looking heels, and a blue sweater in case the weather turned chilly (in which it did!), I had a fabulous day yesterday wearing both modern and old-fashioned.

An feminine, grown-up, cute, fun outfit quite becoming to the beautiful birthday girl. :)

You're loved!

I likes it!

Cindy said...

You are so young! In my mind I was thinking you were a much older woman. I guess because you sound so mature.
Nice outfit.

You all are so sweet and kind. ::blushes:: Thankyou!

Hi Cindy,

Nice to "meet" you! I suppose I am "young" although with recently turn 25, I don't consider myself to be *that* young. ::winks::

Blessings!

Wow what a beautiful skirt. I love it. You keep inspiring me to make things, to actually sew which I haven't done so in a while. If you dont mind my asking. What pattern is your basic a-line skirt pattern?
Oh its so pretty and I love what you have done with the bottom.
Thankyou :) May God bless you abundantly,
Meagan
