What I'm Wearing / Tweed Weather!

4:00 PM

Today, we FINALLY had some real fall weather!  I'm always excited when the seasons change. 
So while I was standing in my closet this morning looking for something to wear, I grabbed this wool tweed skirt from way back.  It seems I'm on a pencil skirt kick right now.  
This skirt is Butterick 5249, that I made back in 2008.  I'm sure it's out of print now.  I made a few modifications to the pattern to achieve the look I was going for at the time.  And I'm glad I did because I love the uniqueness of this skirt.   
Make classics, have classics!

  1. I love that belt that you are wearing with the skirt. You're whole outfit is very classy. I wish we were having more of a fall spell here in South Alabama. It is not hot, but it is not really what I would call cool either.

  11. gorgeous skirt! I clicked on the link to the original post for the skirt. I LOVE how it turned out. Yours looks ten times better than the one on the pattern. I was also surprised to see how different you looked with straight hair. I think your current hairstyle suits your personality more. You look fantastic! Love your blog!

  15. I love this skirt and the one from yesterday. That's it! I swear I am going to sit down and learn to really sew even if it takes me all Winter. Or at least until I can make a decent pencil skirt.

    Lord help me...LOL
