Since I retired I've pretty much worn trousers all of the time, unless I was 'dressed up'. And my wardrobe has gradually reflected that. Then during this past summer I wondered why. I started wearing skirts and dresses much more and really enjoying it. So I've made myself three new skirts for the winter. I've used the same pattern, since the first one I made fitted pretty well and I also feel good that I've got my money's worth. Aren't paper patterns expensive now?
Black fine needlecord
Burgundy jumbo cord
Tartan wool. I'm tempted to buy some more of this to make a dressing gown, it's so warm and costy.
