Must Make: Emerson Made

The Wellies I'll wear with it.  The pattern I have.  The pleats, pockets and length is different but those are an easy fix.
 For quite some time I've had in my possession a vintage pattern from my Mother for a skirt similar to this. I wasn't certain I could pull it off because of the strong 80's look.   Perhaps that was just the styling of the pattern's photo?  But WOWZA after seeing this one by Emerson Made I must make it.  Yes, in that mustard yellow.  It is such a beautiful color and oh so difficult to pull off in shirts as it makes most everyone's skin look pale and sickly.  But in a skirt it will be fantastic!  Oh and it will go lovely with my red wellies I received for Christmas.  That is when they are worn for fashion and not dirty jobs in the garden or at the land.

  2. The wellies made by Quest are from a WI chain called Fleet Farm. You should be able to find high quality wellies at your local farm supply store. Thank you for your interest. ;)
