There was a time when I avoided pencil skirts like the plague, now I have a collection gathering up in my wardrobe. How times have changed.

I almost ruined this beautiful second hand skirt. I remembered that it was cotton but forgot how delicate velvet can be when putting it in the washing machine. Learn from my mistake, read the care label! Because it said dry cleaning only! I think I’ve saved it for now, there was still some seam allowance left for me to zig zag along. I better not make that washing mistake again, otherwise I’ll have a skirt without a waistband.

The sweatshirt is also a second hand find that I basically live in. I’ve now copied the pattern and plan to sew another one soon.
