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..
