I’m super pleased with today’s outfit, because I finished something new! I finally put the buttons on my unfinished Beignet skirt. I also wrote up some quick tips on buttons and buttonholes yesterday – click here if you missed it!
- Self-Stitched Skirt: Colette Patterns’ Beignet in wool with bemberg lining
- Blouse: no label, from my sister’s closet
- Shoes: H&M – aren’t they cute?! Red pumps, yay!
Q. What’s the best part of today’s outfit?
A. That I finally finished this skirt! I’ve been wanting to wear it forever but wasn’t too pumped on making 11-12 buttonholes. It’s comfortable, flattering, and works well with blouses. Total success!
Q. Where did you go today in your Self-Stitched outfit?
A. To work, then to a house party afterwards. Because of this skirt, I ended up talking to a couple of girls who wished they wore skirts more, and we started chatting about how to wear skirts in the fall and working them into our wardrobes more often. How fun is that?
Q. Would you make this skirt again?
A. Absolutely! I would make some fitting adjustments for next time, mostly to compensate for my small waist. For this first try, I just overlapped the skirt more at centre front and tied the belt tighter.
