I love woollen skirts

Rightio so here is the skirt:

I had to make it too small for me because I love it and would keep all to myself! It still needs a zip and hemmed and the waistband sorted out but I don't have a suitable zip laying about.

I was wondering if you all could help me a bit here. What are your thoughts on lining in skirts? Personally I don't like it. I find it makes the skirt slippy and spin. And when you try to tuck a jumper or shirt in, it doesn't stay tucked in because they can't grip onto the lining! But if this is just me I don't want to be making skirts without lining when everyone else wants their skirts to be lined. So if you could let me know what you think that would be much appreciated :)

Today I'm going fabric shopping :) I'm heading to Glasgow's West End for all the vintage shops so hopefully I'll have some exciting things to show you later.

Hope you have a good day

  1. Hi there, on balanced I'd say line the skirt. I usually prefer an 'underskirt' of some sort when I wear a skirt (not very often) so better to have one specifically for the skirt that you're wearing.

  3. Hi thank you very much for your input :)
    I decided to go ahead and line it because if the person who ends up owning the skirt doesn't want lining it's easy enough to take it out. But if it was the other way round, putting lining in would be way more annoying!
    Thanks again for popping by :)
