This skirt has only been worn once. After making it a few months ago, I was disappointed when the skirt ripped halfway through the day. It wasn't my sewing and instead it got snagged on a loose nail. After fixing up the tear, this skirt seemed like a perfect spring reminder to pair with my black tights.
When I felt a chill halfway through my second day of wear I looked down to discover that again my skirt had ripped. This time almost all the way down the side, and I spent the day kept together with safety pins.
The only thing more exciting than bringing out the tights, is bringing out these patent leather shoes. I picked these up at Payless about a year ago, and work them into my regular wardrobe. They are comfortable, and perfect for all day wear. More importantly they have a great throwback feel of being a lady in the Victorian era, enjoying tea on the porch while sewing. Maybe if I was a Victorian lady my cross stich patterns wouldn't tare as easily as my current sewing project skirts.
