A Personal Project

I searched YEARS for a similar skirt style made by McCall in the mid-30's:


When I obtained this '29 McCall, I knew I had to put the skirt pieces to use right away!  I need a good skirt to go with a kimono-style top I am finishing from a contemporary McCall's pattern for this Thanksgiving.  I am drawn to how architectural the lines of the skirt are (and funny, I will be dining with architects for that holiday!).
This is the charmeuse print I have:
The skirt will coordinate well in chocolate wool crepe, yuuuuuummmmmmm.

I love the skirt! I love the lines! Is this one you will duplicate?

The skirt is gorgeous but I'm convinced the cute little green sleeveless blouse wants to come live at my house.

Snarktastical, I like the way you put the new 'home for the sleeveless blouse'. Haha! It is a special pattern for the deco blouse.

I am not out to torment anyone, but this is a pattern that will not be available next spring. I have plenty of surprises coming in multi-size before this one is available as such.

I'll post skirt project photos here once I get the project underway, though.
