Again a simple skirt, but boy do I love this skirt. I bought the fabric off Ebay a few years ago. It was actually the skirt fabric and lining sold together and I am amazed that the seller didn’t want to make up an outfit with these items.

At the end of the day it is just a simple two piece fabric – the skirt piece cut twice on the fold and a waist band.

The lining is a lovely silky pale green fabric and all I did for the hems of the lining and shell was a rolled hem.

The top is a RTW bought a few years ago. I think I could dress up this skirt or dress it down and just muck about in it. Amusingly, I did manage to purchase some more of the georgette fabric so there may be another outfit of this fabric along the way. Pity I have no more of that lining.

And the rosé? My Man Andrew is away and so I have a bottle of rosé all to myself – eh, he wouldn’t drink it anyway. But I know he’d like my skirt.




Jen Brown just plain-old likes making stuff. If it's usable and wearable when complete, so much the better. A new technique or a chance to see how something worked is where the challenge lies.

  2. What a sweet, simple skirt that really highlights the fabulous fabric. I want to see pictures of that lining you like so much though!

  3. Hale to the Rose, another gorgeous piece from Jen. I think Mena sparked a cool challenge with the last minate change, quite a few, including myself did simple patterns but showcase gorgeous fabric. I really love the skirt and see it as a stable to your wardrobe. Happy St Patty’s Day!
