And with advice from the impossibly glamorour Rachel on twitter and with help from this fabulous tutorial on her blog House of Pinheiro which teaches you how to draft your own skirt pattern, I cut, pressed, folded, measured and came up with a real life skirt. Here it is modelled alone.
And here it is modelled with my new deep cyan 9% cashmere jumper which looks really expensive but cost £10 from the sale rail in M&Co.
So watch this space for many more Kokka and Echino linen skirts. Quilts? So yesterday. And P.S., when I showed my 15 year old son, his response was "woah, we thought you were dorky before ...".
