lately i've been massively craving a new staple pencil skirt, i used to have two colours of this Topshop origami skirt in black and bluey purple which i used to wear pretty much every day, so much that i ripped the seams of both of them (shitty topshop materials plus the wrong stitch down the sides plus not having teeny thighs!) and after about 3 repair jobs they were confined to the bin of shame.
so i saw this beautiful skirt on Net a Porter from Craven, which just about made my day, it's totally versatile and textured and interesting enough that i could wear it to interviews and not feel like a nob, then switch the top and wear it out. anyhow i'm in love.
Except it's like £250. so, given my soon to be new found freedom, i'm head down to whatever fabric mecca i can find and dig out mum's sewing machine and try and make my own, will obvs show you the results.
