Borrowed Furs >> The Pencil Skirt

This skirt had amazing fabric.  All I had to do was take it apart, match the flat pieces to my muslin, cut it down to size, add darts,  zig-zag stitch the wool edges, and then stitch it back together.  

I definitely plan on doing this method again.  It was pretty straightforward and fast once I got my muslin all figured out.

In the back, I kept the zipper intact.  I also kept the buttonhole and button waistband as they were.  The band fit perfectly without alterations.

Stuff >> tights, shoes
Thrift(ed) or Free >> hat, gold frame pin, butterfly pin, shirt, belt, fur collar 
Me Made or (Re)Made >> wool skirt
