A *SKIRT* Marfy 2253

For the first time in about 5 years (and 15 lbs) I started on a skirt today!

This is Marfy 2253 which is one of the free patterns from this years catalog.

Before you think that I am going too uptown, I am using denim! I thought that the yoke front lent itself to the denim look. I am using a dark brown espresso colored denim with 2% lycra from EOS. I have spent days looking for the perfect starter skirt pattern, and I chose this because it will give me freedom of movement and let me get used to working with denim before I start working on jeans.

One question, do you think that one would really be able to get it on and off through that button placket? I guess if I can't I could always sneak in a side zipper.

Before you ask, I am not lining it! I am underlining it so that it doesn't cling to my legs and twist when I walk.

I am also considering a dress *gasp* Do I even remember how to wear a dress? Do I want to? I really see myself as a bit more glamorous than I dress at the moment, and at my new job (with the professional shoe collectors) it is socially acceptable.

Here is one to consider, Vogue 8280 which supposedly looks great on all figure types:

Have you ever noticed that this claim is either made by someone trying to sell a dress, or someone who allready looks like a supermodel!
