Okay, so the less that is said about my hair today the better.

This skirt is the second pleated skirt I made out of the online pattern I posted in this entry. To make it, I bought a below knee length tartan skirt with an atrocious elasticated waist from a charity shop for £2. It's a lovely wool blend fabric so in need of being repurposed I felt! I simply cut out the waistband, unpicked the seams, and then used to fabric to make the skirt as per the pattern. It's ace! I don't think I'll ever tire of high waisted, pleated skirts.. .

I teamed this with a plain top, brown loafer heels, and a tan belt. I added a vintage scarf after taking this because I felt it lacked something.

Top, £free, clothes swap
Belt, £free, old vintage stock
Skirt, £2, repurposed old lady skirt
Heels, £15 clarks sale.


  1. I simply love your handmade skirts :) May I ask how you made it? I mean I have the pattern but I'm not sure how to do it so that the skirt wouldn't make me even fatter. But I like the way your skirt is made so I wanted to ask how many pleats it has? Thank you! :)

  2. I just discovered this blog and I'm going back through all your old outfit posts, love this blog!
