2B pencil

A bit difficult to tell, but this is a different pencil/straight skirt in a wool/poly/elastane blend in a dark charcoal-y colour. Drapes very nicely indeed. I put in an invisible zipper using this tutorial. Not absolutely perfect, but the main issssew was not being able to press the zipper teeth and tape properly flat, they kept popping up again making it a bit time consuming.

Good old new look 6843. View B, no slit this time.

The green wiggle

Seem sort of familiar? Hmmm?

But they're not the same! I kept the sweetheart neckline! I think I prefer your V neck though. She is very comfortable what with the stretch and all.

I really should come up with some more dynamic poses.

I wish! I'm happy with the buttons and she is much more glam when worn with fishnets and high boots, as I did this evening.

Made using this McCalls pattern. Size 8 worked well, it's still big enough to wear over a frock as a coat.
