I will only be away for a week, so will need to pack smart and light as I hate having to drag too much luggage with me when I travel for short trips. I have to give two presentations and thought that I might wear my blue Chanel style jacket that I made for my sister's wedding, and with this in mind, I decided to use up the remnant of blue wool that I purchased at Linton Tweed that I found in their bargain bucket for just £5.00.
Now the reason I purchased this remnant was because it was the exact same wool that I purchased to make my Burda dress that I wore with my blue jacket for the wedding. How did I know it was the same?? Ah well, I knew it was the same was because I had my dress in the car and compared it to the fabric before I purchased it. After making my dress I had a little left over and thought that this extra metre of fabric would give me an element of certainty that I would have enough fabric for a skirt to go with my jacket.
This morning (the last of my long weekend) I cut out and made the skirt from this McCalls 6042 Palmer Pletsch pattern from the single piece of fabric I purchased, leaving my original scraps left unused. I will post a photo/review at the end of the week, because I still have to hem it.
