Navy Blue Wide Skirt

Neki dan sam imala pospremanje ormara..uvijek to radim na prijelazu godišnjih doba. Donijela sam iz podruma vreču sa stvarima koje ću "možda jednom nositi". Neke sam stvari već prije stavila na prodaju na Krpice.hr, ali ništa. Tada sam se sjetila da mi je kolegica s posla rekla jednom da ako imam odjeću viška nek je ne bacam jer ona zna jednu samohranu majku kojoj bi to dobro došlo. Nisu to iznošene stvari, njih bacam, već stvari koje su mi postale premalene nakon što sam nabacila kiludvije. Pa eto ispraznila sam tu vreču punu odjeće koju nakon par godina ne nošenja sigurno nikad neću nositi i umjesto toga usrećila jednu ženu.

The other day I was cleaning the closet .. I always do it at the turn of the seasons. I brought up a bag from the basement full of clothes I "might wear someday." Then I remembered what my colleague said once to me if I have extra clothes I shouldn't throw it because she knows a single mom that could use it. It is not worn clothes but clothes that had become too small. So, I emptied the bag of clothes, after a few years of not wearing it, and I made some woman happy.

This is my new skirt, made of navy blue twill, with Burda pattern 5/2012 just like the other one I made last year. Wide and comfortable. 
I just love wide skirts during the summer months. No heat in them ;)
