My love of midi skirts and leather continue………

One of the freshest feminine silhouettes is the midi skirt.  These perfect skirts can be worn in the summer as well as the winter, along with a pair of tights and a great pair of boots.  This skirt was made with this cotton twill from moodfabrics.com  which is a medium weight organic fabric perfect for the more structured skirt.  The pattern used for this skirt was this Butterick B5285 view B with the following alterations:

Added 12″ to the length
Used inverted pleats instead of box pleats
Added a 4 1/2″ high waist

The top was made with this cotton shirting from moodfabrics.com a light weight fabric perfect for a top with a tad bit of stretch needed.  The leather used is a medium weight lambskin, which paired with this Italian cotton is a perfect combination.  The pattern used for this top is Vogue V8877 view A with the following alterations:

Added a 1/2″ collar
Removed 7″ from the bottom of the pattern to create a cropped top
Added a back pleat

The arm warmers are DIY wool and leather made here.

I happen to love this look but when my husband saw me, his first response was “that’s an interesting outfit” which means he’s not a fan but hey what do men know!
