Finally I've finished something. It feels like it's been *weeks* since I've even picked up a pair of scissors. I decided to throw together a slim wool skirt for a daytime Titanic tea party we're having here on The Centennial. Mostly this was inspired by a shirtwaist I nabbed several weeks ago at Sacramento Antiques, and now I'm really glad I put together the skirt to go with it - looks sharp!
Skirt: Blue wool lined in taffeta; Butterick 4092
Blouse: Vintage waist, 1910-15
|The buttons on the skirt are inspired by this image of Lily Elsie, although mine doesn't have nearly as many buttons.|
|The back - there were quite a few holes that I attempted to darn - improvement, maybe? Time will tell.|
