I've joined Me Made May

Thanks to Zoe for kicking off a challenge on her blog here.

Its basically a push to create garments and try as best as you can to go hand made in May.   I'm riding on a high after my red dress, so getting all those patterns and fabrics out of my stash that have languished after the initial burst of enthusiasm.

This one isn't exciting at all.  Just a pencil skirt with a nice if corporate-dull fabric, but if successful is destined to become a work staple.  And for my personal indulgence a hot pink lining !   I can see it happening with boots / heels / flats.   I'm doing knee length as my mini skirt wearing days are over.   But I did have a successful version of the above knee version of this skirt many years ago.  The pattern is dated 1996 so it must have been then, I would have been 31, how long ago that seems. 


  1. I think that fabric looks great, you'll be able to tie it into so many outfits, great choice! x

  2. The hot pink lining is awesome. And I love a good basic pencil skirt. So versatile, can be worn with a cute little cami for going out.

    And - cos I haven't commented, I love your red dress. I love the fabric and the fit. You look fabulous.
