I don't think I've not made a white linen skirt for every summer for 10 years at least. Why? You might ask! Because every year Id like something different (not all skirts are created equal) or perhaps I gained or lost weight.
The white linen skirt! It's such an indispensable tog! It goes so well with any beautiful blouse and feels light, it's swell and very sporty. The white linen summer skirt is a piece you'll find in thousands of photographs of the 1930s (and of course in other eras).
I usually sew a nice big pleat down the center front or make a button down skirt with white or shell buttons. This year I made the latter with pockets. I just felt a need for pockets this year. Mainly for just putting my hands in in a swanky manner.
Just a white skirt, gay blouse and matching shoes, ONE bangle bracelet and my favourite coral lipstick.And then my newly finished knitted! I finally sewed up the Castilian jiffy knit jumper that I blocked ages ago. I like it but I had knit it when I was a few pounds heavier and so it's a size or two up for me and I don't like articles that aren't perfectly suited to my figure. It may not look it but the jumpers a bit big and too long. The ribbing band isn't at my waist like a true 1930s sweater but ten again I do like the blousiness of it!
This year the skirt was 1935 length and unlined. I'm not a snob about linings, I line my articles only if I care to or if they really must be lined, as suits must be.
This is my second to last summer ensemble that I'll make this season, and then it's on to autumn togs!
I've got a couple more knits to finish and that's fine, for they'll go with my autumn ensembles utterly!
See you soon!
