DIY herringbone pencil skirt and sweatshirt

Then there’s that wool you love so much you make multiple looks out of it.  Being the lover of wool that I am, this wool from Mood is probably one of my all time favorites. I’m madly in love with the fact it’s a rich fabric that provides structure with a slight stretch, making it a perfect choice for dresses, skirts, pants and jackets.

The skirt was made using my favorite self drafted pencil skirt found here with the following alterations:
-Added a 2″ hem band

The top was made with this McCalls M6992  sweatshirt pattern view A with the following alterations:
-Added a back seam
-Added a 9″ zipper down the back
-Removed 5″ from the length
-Removed 1/2″ from the back pattern at the neck
-Added 1 1/2″ to the length of the sleeve
-Added 4″ to the waist band
