I saw a skirt at Anthropologie that I liked, but then I thought, "Can I make something similar?" In the end, mine does not look very much like the pink pencil skirt that inspired it, but I am happy nonetheless. I made a pattern from one of my old favorite skirts that is starting to get a bit tattered. This is a paneled skirt with large front pockets to give it a vintage feel. I'll try to get a photo with me wearing it pressed and accessorized soon.
I think I'll get a lot of use out of this skirt before the close of summer. Just in time. Hmm.. what else did I want to do before fall? Meals outside. Check check.
