In Which A Bit of An Enthusiast Admits To Ignoring A Favourite Thing In Lieu of A New Favourite Thing

Tweed Grey Hollyburn

Dear River Island Favourite Favourite Grey Tweed Dirndl Skirt with the secret, tiny flocked black hearts on the inside- you were my first love.  My first skirt love, I mean.

You started a passion for skirts with sweater tops and tees, skirts with big belts, skirts with cowboy boots, skirts with cute Mary Jane flats… five years of Skirt Love which you kindled.  But time passes and threads start wearing thin.  It’s not that I wanted to replace you- I just wanted to preserve you, you see.

Which is why Hand Made Favourite Grey Tweed Hollyburn Skirt appeared on the scene and you were, sadly, relegated to the drawer.   I do have a guilty start when I see you lurking under a pile of pajama bottoms.  But you see, Grey Tweed Hollyburn is new and handmade and has lovely crisp pockets and cute vintage buttons on the tabs… well, you know how it goes.

It’ll need washing before too long and then you’ll see the light of day again.

  1. Lovely! Have got this pattern lined up as well, just haven’t found the right fabric yet. Maybe tweed’s the way to go! Thanks for the inspiration (And RIP River Island skirt)


  2. Your skirt looks so bristish to me! I love it (especially the pockets and the tabs! I didn’t know this pattern but it surelly looks great!!


  3. I love love love this pattern – and I may end up making one just like this, it’s beautiful! Where is your lovely cardi from too? Always on the hunt for more mustard clothing…


    • Hi Suse! Ah I totally agree- it’s a lovely pattern and I’m wearing the skirt as I type! Very well worth buying this pattern and I hope to make more at some point. Thank you for your compliment! The cardi is from Joy- I don’t know if they still stock them but my mate Dolly Clackett gets her lovely cardigans from Hell Bunny which I think is available online too. Happy cardi hunting!
