I already have knitted jumpers to wear ( I am not sure if you call them jumpers in your part of the world ). I always wear them over winter over t-shirts to keep warm. I don't have a casual jacket - the sort of thing to wear to the supermarket, or out for a walk). I also want some skirts to go with it. I've got jeans, but sometimes I like to wear skirts with warm woolly tights.
I was born in England and love the English style of dressing exemplified by the quintessential English designer, Margaret Howell.
I have kept this picture for years - just a simple, grey, A Line skirt. Margaret Howell would
use a wool, but I am going to use a grey corduroy that is already in my stash.
I am also going to make a black corduroy skirt like the one on the left -
again, Margaret Howell would use a wool for this.
I have wanted to make these skirts for 3 years - the fabric has been washed and waiting through three winters of completing a Graduate Diploma in Psychology (plus my bridging units). This year I am on a gap year, so I am going to make them!
I've started work on the casual jacket - I'm going to make up some black polar fleece in my stash - fleece is really bulky, so this gets a chunk of stash out of the way quickly! I made a muslin last week and cut the main jacket out today:

Well, I hope to have something to post in a couple of weeks - but for now, I look forward to hearing your plans.
