Brown Tweed Mini Skirt

I love mini + boots conbination... it's very 60's.

I made this skirt more than 5 years ago, and it has been the major work force in my wardrobe ever since.



I usually wear it with turtle neck sweaters or a white button-down shirt. Here I am wearing my favorite combination: a black turtle neck, the skirt, and black boots. (I'd like to point out that these fake-suede boots are from Walmart!) My American friends often says that you shouldn't mix black and brown in the same outfit---but I think if you make brown the only other color to go with black, the outfit could be very chic.... What do you think??








I used Vogue 2811 pattern. I was initially disappointed to find out the front pockets were not functional, but it's probably a good thing since having stuffed pockets is not a pretty sight... not to mention the risk of finding the forgotten tissue or cookie fortune in the washer.




*I intentionally did not match the patten so that piecing the fake pokets was not waisted effort..

    1. The funny thing is...those friends who commented on black and brown combo were mostly men... maybe they are taking advice from men's GQ or something, like "You shouldn't mix brown and black accessories in the same outfit." which is sort of like mixing silver & gold accessories...(which I also do lol)

  5. you have NATURE,in fact,AUTUMN, on your side,tree trunks and branches are something between black and grey, with so many beautiful shades of brown leaves...
    and fake front pockets do not just leave much better visual impression,but we look thinner and feel more comfortable.
    NICE WORK !
    and enjoy autumn!

    1. I just love mini-length bottoms because it's easier to move... I get sort of claustrophobic in tight, long bottom sometimes...
