Soon I’ll be heading to the US for work where the maximum temperature is currently minus 15 degrees celsius. I have no idea what to wear to keep warm in that sort of temperature but fortunately I will be spending pretty much all of my time indoors. My focus is on warm clothes suitable for the office and then I’ll add lots of layers for getting to and from the office. So today I made a wool skirt suitable to wear with knee-high boots and thick tights.
This skirt was made using an old Style pattern (number 2146), and the fabric was from my pre-Christmas sale shopping at Spotlight – just $2 per metre. I’m really happy with how this turned out but it was a bit of a struggle sewing woolen fabric in 32 degree heat! More new warm outfits to come in the coming week or two! Here are a few more photos.
