Did she or didn’t she?
No, I did not have the requisite balls to wear the faux fur skirt to work, although I did finish the skirt last night. Boy, you guys were really opinionated on whether I should wear it to work or not. Very interesting.
Note to self in case I make another faux fur skirt: Remember to add seam allowances for the side opening. My side opening with the hook and eye tape is not too invisible as the the faux fur edge is visible. I added SA’s for the slit; should have done so for the opening. Live and learn!
Also, my lining is too short. How does this always happen? My linings are always either too short or too long despite measuring. What is the trick here people?!
I am very pleased with the my skirt despite the closure looking a little ragged. I can hide that with a well placed cardigan. It is such a pleasure to look at, wear and touch.
The good news though, is that I am wearing it tonight to dinner with my friends. I will be sure to post pictures later!
ETA: Someone left me a comment yesterday about the term “off the reservation” being possibly offensive. In retrospect, I can definitely see that, but was not aware of it when I wrote it and certainly did not mean to be offensive at all. My sincere apologies if anyone took offense.
