Fall lookbook: pleated skirt in grey wool fabric

Now autumn has arrived. The leaves are colorful, the meadows are intensively green and the weather is unstable. I love autumn: the beautiful colors in nature, the wind and of course, that I can wear skirts and boots again! Skirts of tights and boots are simply my favourite outfit combination for everyday life. That’s why I sewed  an autumn wool skirt to get myself started in the new season.

The „housedress“ wrapdress with collar

Not only the patterns in this book are awesome, it also contains a lot of tricks and hacks for better sewing that opened my eyes in many ways. There is so much that I have been doing wrong.
