autumn blues

Finally I found time to do some sewing and this skirt was at the top of my pile. Fortunatly I didn't have to unsew the zip, which was perfect, only had to stretch it in the middle (hips!) and it had enough hem allowance to do it (I love a good quality piece!). I also shortened it because the lenght was not flattering on me. This is a really easy sewing but it makes such a difference!.
This skirt is part of a suit that I bought at a charity shop and its jacket has had a lot of success since then, I've worn it at least once every week and received some compliments. Tweed is great for our unpredictable weather!
Linking Visible Monday and hope that you're having a visible week!

Al final pude dedicarle algo de tiempo a la costura y esta falda estaba arriba del todo de mi pila de proyectos. Por suerte, no tuve que tocar la cremallera, que es un engorro, y sólo tuve que ensancharla por el medio (una, que tiene caderas) y tenía suficiente costura para hacerlo (cómo me gusta una prenda de calidad!). También la acorté un poco, porque el largo no me favorecía nada, y es una cosita fácil de hacer y marca la diferencia!
Esta falda es parte de un traje que compré en una tienda solidaria y la chaqueta me la he puesto un montón de veces desde entonces, un éxito. Este tejido de tweed es genial para este tiempo tan cambiante del otoño.
Enlazo al Visible Monday y espero que estéis teniendo una semana muy visible.

  1. You did a great job with the skirt, it's a perfect fit and anything that doesn't requite changing the zip gets a massive thumbs up from me! xxx

  2. Tweed is a true classic. That little typewrite pin is adorable!


  3. The typewriter brooch is exquisite!

    I love your tweed skirt - what a useful piece it will be. I also love your tweed jacket. Will you wear the two pieces as a suit do you think or is it a bit too formal for you? As separates it's wonderful, too!

    Good luck with your sewing pile...

  4. You did a great job on the skirt. It's a gorgeous tweed, and I'm glad you were able to make it work for you. I bet you'll get a lot of wear out of it. I love a bit of tweed! Like Suzanne and Veronica, I adore the little typewriter brooch. I just have to comment on it every time I spot it on your blog! Besos xxx

  5. What a beautiful skirt. My sewing pile is banished to the closet where I can't see it ;)

  6. All these blue shades make me very happy!! Such gorgeous outfit x

  7. Things like extra seam allowance, and hems - you just don't see that in clothes anymore, and what a shame that is. What a great piece the skirt is, really a classic. Looking lovely, my dear!

  8. You did a wonderful work with this beautiful tweed skirt - such a great fit! I love this whole ensemble, with subtle shades and layering!


  9. I love how you incorporate so many different shades of one colour into an outfit.
