Vogue 8956

IMG_2789I have got a little sewing mojo back up and running and after a trip to Fabrics Galore, I made this great wrap round skirt.  The fabric is a fine checked wool, so lots of matching to do – I just bought an additional 60cm to make sure and was a total bargain at £2 per meter!  FG is just the best.

IMG_2776I am pleased with the pattern matching

Its view B, thought the longer version would be better for work and am planning on making another in plain black wool flannel.  I did add lining to this skirt as I really don’t like unlined skirts, tights clinging and also the fabric will ‘seat’ too.  Maybe I will add a little Ozwald Boateng influence and add a bright lining to the flannel.  While browsing the pattern books i added Vogue 8930 to my must sew list and will be going in search of some fabric for that – maybe some faux shearling fabric that I saw at FB or boiled wool?  What would you make the coat in, any suggestions?
