i’m still in love with my kenneth-king-drafted take on the skirt from my 1940s baby, simplicity 2099. this is my version from earlier this year in the pseudo-chanel-wool i found in paris in the mahlia kent remnant bin. for 8 euro. for the entire piece.
it’s ok, you can drool.
after my style struggles, as documented in my sew weekly post (and painfully evident from the above photo), i think i am starting to get a handle on this skirt. as i mentioned earlier this week, i’m a bit of a clothes hoarder, so putting together this outfit (one i think will become a fave) involved some closet-shopping, but not much else.
skirt: self-drafted, inspired by simplicity 2099
blouse: nanette lepore, circa 2006
sweater: bloomingdale’s “sutton cashmere” with cool ruffle trim, hem pinned in place at natural waistline by moi
