This is attempt number 2 on the tailoring thing. Today, I went for a tailored skirt rather than a jacket. This skirt, even though it was inexpensive, just fits PERFECTLY and because of this, becomes tailored. It has a very well made yoke, that falls exactly where it should. It has deep, low pockets. The fabric, unfortunatly, is synthetic, yet falls well. When I bought the skirt, it looked like the hem had never been pressed--maybe that's how Zara's could offer it so inexpensively!
sweater and vest~Marshall's
Styling first started with the sweater, then I just started piling on the stuff--the vest, the scarf, dangly earrings.
And how excited am I that I can still wear these shooties??? They give me my funk. Won't be able to wear them too much longer tho...snow in the forecast...I have been saying that tho......
Fabrics: Sweater-cashmere, scarf-wool challis, skirt-some synthetic, stockings-merino wool. I'm hoping that the better fabrics will outweigh the synthetic!
Do we have tailoring that dosen't look stodgy?
