This is my second skirt of spring break. I call this the "I should have been editing my paper" skirt. I've been working on something else that should be called "why grading is going so slowly." I got this American Apparel like jersey knit at Modeani's and just folded over the top twice, ironed, and did a basic zig zag stitch, and added a 1/2 inch elastic. This is the wrong way to do it. I should have stretched out the elastic, and zig zagged it into the jersey, but that's for next time. I had to hand sew some reinforcements to prevent the waistband from sliding too much. I didn't finish the end. I just made sure it was even enough. I figure if AA charges $35 for unfinished jersey skirts, I could live with that too. Not bad for about 2 hours of time.
I braved the crowds at Propsect Park this morning to meet a friend in this outfit. I like how this outfit reminds me of the simple, classic and uber chic outfits that Elaine at Much Clothed wears so well.
I am growing increasingly fond of the microfishnets. I found these for a song at Daffy's (a dangerous store).
It was probably too cold for this today, but it was nice to be outside and talking shop with a fellow professor/Brooklynite.
