Well, I finally feel like sewing again! But before I get to my sewing project I'd like to talk a little thrift with you. This coat. Serious love affair with this one people. I bought it a couple of years ago and it is a classic piece in my coat collection. I can't tell you how many times I have been complimented on this one. I just love the silhouette and color. And of course its warmth!! The snow is beautiful but chilly!

Ok, so enough gushing over my thrift find and on to the skirt. I used Newlook 6107 view D.
Pattern: Newlook 6107
Fabric used: A lovely polka dot wool! The polka dots are flocked.
Instructions: The instructions were clear and straight forward.
Changes I made: The only change I made was adding a lining to this skirt. I like a lined skirt in the winter...it makes wearing tights easier. Oh and I used an invisible zipper...as per usual for me. They are my favorite.
Repeat worthy? Yup! This skirt is basic and has a great fit for me. I can see myself making this one repeatedly!
It feels good to be sewing again... a dress and a skirt all within a week! I'm bubbling over with excitement and a wonderful sense of accomplishment! The only down side to such productivity is a VERY messy sewing room and a laundry hamper bubbling over as well!
