My darling skirt part two

Hello! Thank you again to all the awesome readers who come by this blog and to those who leave comments, even after months of doing this blogging thing I'm still amazed at the amount of good vibrations I get in exchange for showing you some of my modest garments! Let's start immediately with the third installment in the "Dior"^^ series, behold the Millefeuille Skirt!


I used a basic pencil skirt pattern from an old BWOF and I drafted my ruffles using the dimensions of the assembled skirt. I've made a Paint picture to show you the idea in case you'd want to get this "millefeuille" effect:

I sewed lace along the ruffles because I thought it would add a little cuteness since the garment is black. Today I dressed it down for work with a greyish turtleneck and black pumps but I plan to wear it later with a white shirt, a pink satin belt with a bow^^ and leopard pumps. If I don't look like Bette Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? in said outfit I promise I'll take pics! See you!
