From Vintage Apron To A New Skirt

It started with a casual browse in Oxfam. A print caught my eye and I had to have it.

Maybe it’s from watching Mad Men (wow, so much to talk about there!) but I wanted to make a figure hugging pencil skirt à la Joan. The only way to get that look is to either get it tailor made or tailor an existing skirt to you measurements.

I have to say, I walk a lot differently in close fitting clothes. Pair with heels for that Joan Holloway wiggle.

The Oxfam I mentioned is on South Great George’s Street. Whoever dresses their windows does a great job. Here are a few from the last few months.
