When I spied this skirt in Petone’s St Vinnies I had to rescue it. Made by the now defunct Aotearoa House it features a lovely kōwhai embroidery on the front. But - OH - those checks! Fortunately it was a little on the long side so wouldn’t be indecently short once recut.
A few hours in the weekend unpicking, cutting and stitching, plus a good press and shave and I have a new winter skirt.
Plus I heard this old fav on the radio while weaving some magic.
