Solution Skirt!

The Problem:
These amazingly awesome shoes I got on sale at Macy's a YEAR AND A HALF AGO! I had this skirt envisioned in my head to go with them - kind of a 1940s look. Needless to say I couldn't find it.

The Solution:
Make myself a skirt!! This was an obvious option and a great way to break in my new sewing machine (no more having to use my mom's machine that she's had since before she was married... 25 years ago).

I finished this a week ago but finally hemmed it last night. This is the most I ever spent on fabric ($25 a yard) yikes! But it's really nice fabric (a wool weave with many shades of brown and rust).

And here's the finished product (I wore it to work today):

Have a wonderful weekend! :)
