Pattern: Butterick 4092 for the skirt
Fabric and Materials: Black wool twill for the skirt

Notes: Made fall/winter 2012. This skirt nearly killed my serger (and I did have to take the machine in to the shop afterwards), but everything worked out in the end. Other than that hiccup, the skirt was pretty easy to make. The blouse is an 1980s vintage find purchased from Tigerlily Frocks. It’s real silk!
