As you may have read in a post or two, I love vintage/vintage inspired apparel. I love twirling about in a vintage style big skirt. Personally, I also feel more comfortable when wearing a skirt/dress.
However, the dresses I tend to buy / sew are what you might call summer sun dresses. They are usually made of light cotton and are either short-sleeved or sleeveless. While, I love these dresses they don’t really transition well, to winter wearing.
I do have quite a few winter sweaters but I find I only have a hand full of winter weather skirts. Last winter I did make a few wintry skirts, but still that limits my choices.
Recently I was luck enough to score some winter fabric, such as wool, felt and corduroy, which I thought would make fantastic skirts.
I’d really like to add more full skirts to my wardrobe, maybe a circle skirt or two. I’d also love to have a full wrap skirt.
However, since I’m limited by the amount of my second-hand fabric I might have to go with one or more pencil skirts.
Lastly I think a jumper dress/skirt might also be fun, but again I’ll have to consider my fabric sizes.
In short I am hoping to complete the following skirt projects before the end of December:
1 – Circle Skirt
1 – Semi-Circle Skirt
1 – Pencil Skirt
1 – Jumper Skirt/Dress
That’s 4 skirts which doesn’t sound like a lot but I’m a pretty slow sewer, so we’ll see how it turns out. I plan on starting this weekend and having a sort of sewing marathon, so wish me luck!
