Take two


I love my bell curve skirt so much that I just have to have another one. It's such a versatile piece. I didn't think I would like a knitted skirt. I mean there are lots of saggy droopy images that spring to mind when you think of wool and a skirt, but the bell curve is just great to wear. It feels feminine and stylish. With a t-shirt it does for hanging round the house, add a shirt or a smart jumper and heels and it takes you on a more formal setting. It looks good all day, doesn't crease and surprisingly doesn't get too warm. I have learnt to watch my rings as they might just get snagged. I have worn this skirt four times already and the only thing I wish is that I had lined it. Having said that I am going to line it, when I figure out how to do that, as I currently have to hear a slip with it.
So bell curve take two is going to be red. It will match all the grey items I currently wear with take one. It's Pride which is a crepe which means it has a bit of a sheen to it and it can be a little splitty on the Knit 5 togs but it seems fine so far.
I can't wait to wear bell curve take two.

I thought the skirt photo was lovely. A go with anything colour. As for the lining, I would use cotton as Nylon against wool will create too much static, keep it simple like the slip and only attach it with slip stitch onto the skirt wasitband. Make sure there is as much give in the lining as there is in the skirt itself. Good luck.

The first one looked so great, it's only natural that you would knit another.

It will be smashing in red! Around this time of year I always get the urge to knit something in red and just today I purchased a vest pattern - which I will knit up in red!

A red skirt, Ally...LOVE it! Can't wait to see it when it's finished. I've had my doubts about a knit skirt too...but seeing all the Bell Curves out there, and how great they do look on all figures, it is inspiring! Happy Days ((HUGS))
