I made this skirt back in February but didn't blog it as everything else I was blogging at the time was also black! We have had an influx of visitors of late so as I haven't had much time for sewing, I thought I'd fill the gap with this little number.
Pleased with the end result though. And its so practical to wear because of the flat front (no waistband) and the fabric doesn't crease.
I originally bought this crepe fabric from Minerva Crafts to make a skirt for work (hence why it's black) but the drape of the fabric is just so soft, it seemed such a shame not to make it into a pretty little skirt with a flounce. So I somewhat got distracted from work clothes and made this instead! I also had some black lace fabric kindly forwarded on to me last summer by the lovely Amanda from wearawyatt.blogspot.co.uk/ which I could just visualise for the lower flounce. So yes OK it's black but it's pretty and it goes with a multitude of tops.

The top I am wearing here isn't made (don't shoot me!) I purchased it from Sheinside for the bargain price of £12 with free P&P. And as I'm not up for doing (or interested in) machine embroidery I feel no remorse for buying it! Plus, it's pretty cute and goes so well with the (now not so) new skirt and my super Handmade Laidback London Boots.
I have to give the boots a mention of their very own because they are just super, super awesome! Imagine wearing your favourite warm, cosy comfy slippers out and about all all day? Well that's just what these beauties feel like. And they are perfect for our currently typical British Spring weather (cold!)
