Last night I made a second Kelly Skirt. With more jumbo ric rac!
This time, the skirt is a birthday present for a friend of mine. We'd been shopping in John Lewis back in the autumn, where we'd spotted this purple corduroy. The colour suits my friend down to the ground, and as soon as we saw it, I suggested the idea of a skirt for her out of it.
Knowing not everyone necessarily shares my passion for ric rac, I checked this detail with her first. Was she ready to take a leap into the world of wearing ric rac as a grown up, I wondered?
She sounded positive, and was game enough to trust my judgement. I hope she likes it!
I will definitely be making myself another Kelly skirt before too long, as I have really enjoyed wearing the one I made for myself a few months ago. The shape is flattering, and I like the fact it has big pockets too - practical and great for keeping my hands warm on days I try and kid myself it isn't cold enough to wear a coat to pop out for the school run.
