Day three of the challenge to wear something refashioned or handmade throughout the month of March continues.
I made this skirt from a pair of 1960's Terence Conran screen print curtains I bought at a jumble sale for 20p ages ago. I even salvaged the offcuts to reuse in my patchworked dining room curtains. The dressmaking pattern is by Simplicity from 1970. It's so straightforward I've made three up in varying lengths and fabrics.
Can you spot the leftover Conran fabric?
I usually save this skirt for summer but with some woollen tights and a vintage slip I can withstand the icy March breeze.
Handmade skirt worn with: 1960's Jeff Banks W1 blouse (car boot sale 50p), vintage Lady Eleanor nylon slip (Salvation Army 50p), Leather clogs (TopShop sale £5)
What with the three jumble sales, wonderful blogger parcels and charity shopping last week I've had an almighty clearout this morning and donated a heap of stuff to the Salvation Army to make room for it all. I hope that the volunteer who sorts it out doesn't look at it, think of me and put it all on one side when I call in tomorrow.
