The first, this self drafted ponte roma tweed look pencil skirt. This may already claim the crown as my most complemented item of clothing bias Facebook anyway ;)
I love the stretchy ponte roma and will make another for work I think, maybe slightly less tight. Versatile and comfy, a winning combination. My fave fabricland has many such winter ponte romas in their winter collection, between £3.50 and £4 per metre.
The skirt in action on the seine!
The second was a simple pair of 'cigarette pants', again in ponte roma jersey but this time houndstooth, cute! Alas I have yet to take a proper snap of these bad boys so here is one taken when locked out of my house, staring at my knees:
Cute fabric no? And I cannot stress how comfy these trousers are! Stretch is clearly my friend where my backside is concerned. I will try to get a better photo soon. I used New Look 6110 and would highly recommend this pattern, it's so simple and has a great fit, all I had to adjust was narrowing the leg width slightly but that's just my little legs below my sizeable arse :)
