I have to be extremely honest with myself on the subject of sewing. The excitement and creativity seemed to hit a all time low for me until this skirt pattern, Lucinda by BeMyGoth. Available for download here:   https://www.etsy.com/listing/205132191/lucinda-pencil-skirt-downloadable-sewing?ref=shop_home_active_2 For some reason the details of this one really appealed to me and my mind began to swirl with fabric and trim ideas. Since I was doing a pattern test for the designer on this one, I decided to go with the simplest of details .  I also did not use the pockets due to the fabric being to stiff for the design. (Make note to self: make again in different fabric to use pockets). 

This is the perfect garment pattern to use some recently acquired beautiful Hot Pink light wool fabric from Mood Fabrics for $30 per yard.  Sold on Kollabora.com in the shop section under fabrics. Here: http://www.kollabora.com/store/kollabora/products/hot-pink-solid-double-face-fabric

Overall the details of the Lucinda were easy to follow and the pieces fit together beautifully. Smart skirt with cute corset waist detail. Zipper closure at back.
