HSF 2014 - Challenge #23 - Modern History (1940s Skirt)

The Challenge: #23 Modern History

Fabric: Wool Mix, lining

Pattern: Simplicity 4044 with added lining

Year: The pattern is a 40s repro. I added a lining even though it wasn't in instructions.

Notions: Zip

How historically accurate is it? The zip is metal, the fabric plausible and the pattern of the period.

Hours to complete: Took me three days of sewing mixture of machine and hand sewing although I left a gap inbetween starting and finishing the skirt.
First worn: 20/12/14

Total cost: Approx. £35

I decided a bit last minute to add the lining after finding the wool fabric shed too much.
