I just finished my third Pencil Skirt, which I do believe I'll don to go to a jazz concert tonight:
This one is made from Anna Maria Horner "Turn of Events" velveteen. As I was cutting it out yesterday, I posted a picture to instagram, saying "I love this fabric."
And as I was working on the skirt, it occurred to me: yes, I REALLY love this fabric. Look:
I think it's funny that I didn't realize until halfway through making the skirt that this is the third garment I've made from a "Turn of Events" fabric!
First was my Continental Blouse, made from cotton voile in December 2011. I still wear this fairly often.
Then there was my first coat from February last year, made with home dec weight cotton sateen.
And now this skirt, made of cotton velveteen. So yes, it's fair to say I love this fabric!
And I think I'm ready to move on from pencil skirts now. At least for a while :-) I've got two more cuts of AMH velveteen that are destined to become a couple more pencils, so it may be a short-ish break.
