Interview and March Garment of the Month - completed

Emily, our Stash-busting co-host asked me to share my thoughts about how I go about creating a cohesive wardrobe and you can read all about it on Emily's blog.

Now half of My Garment of the Month has been completed, it is my TNT Self Drafted pencil skirt in the navy wool that I told you about here.



Again there is not much to tell, it is made like all the others

Looks like the fabric is a magnet for Roscoe's fur!

Waistband using twill tape.
This is also a garment for the March Curating Challenge - Wardrobe Evaluation - I definitely need more work attire and this skirt fits the criteria perfectly.

Now to get back to work on the Marfy skirt, it has taken a few backward steps since last Saturday, I had to undo the hand picked zipper and pick stitching along the waist facing as the skirt is too big!!

Seeing I am still working on my SWAP garments, I am not sure if this will be part of the 3rd 3-pac as my coral top will be great with it!

Smart outfit! Your skirt looks well executed and is indeed perfect for work. Great job!

Another winner! This is like the perfect basic skirt, and navy looks so good on you. It's going to work so beautifully with a lot of your pieces.

Lovely skirt, I like to wear skirts like these too. And oh my goodness, that's the prettiest lining I have ever seen. I am trawling your archives to see if you have more informtaion on it.

Interesting interview at Emily's blog - your dedication to your colours really pays off because all of your garments look great

Another classic. Great interview with Emily it's lovely to read about how you have developed you planning through experience. I like the idea of sewing with a plan and having your colours and style done sounds like a very worthwhile investment. I did buy the colour me beautiful book but perhaps a consultation would be better

A navy skirt is a great addition to the wardrobe.

You do have a great eye for coordination, lowly outfit!

Great skirt. I'm sure that you'll get a lot of wear from it. I was a bit staggered by your stash tally..31mts in. Is that right?

Ooh I Like the pencil skirt. I'm really starting to enjoy wearing them myself. Thanks again for doing the interview!

Nothing quite like the designer touch of Roscoe fur :).

This skirt is such a winner on you. I loved your post on Emily's blog - it's lovely finding out how you work. You inspire me to work my colours more.

You've definitely got the fit and construction down-pat with this lovely skirt! It looks great on you! And I also enjoyed your interview and love learning how to 'sew with a plan' and how to 'work' that plan.

Hana said...

Pretty skirt! I like the whole outfit and it suits you perfectly. Great work!

So very sophisticated again! Loved the interview. I can't imagine being quite this organised with sewing planning (I keep that skill firmly in my work life!) but one day! I must try this twill tape technique!
