I've used an old pencil skirt pattern that has been altered so much and so many times it doesn't resemble the original! I added the fantail to the pattern myself. I bought the black cotton twill from Maculloch and Wallis – it has a bit of stretch in it so it's perfect for a tight-fitting skirt. I have already worn this skirt a few times and it's really comfortable and becoming a wardrobe staple. Here's the outfit I wore it with to a party yesterday and a detail of the fantail at the back:

Apologies for the blurry quality of the photos, it was evening so it's down to bad lighting! I will try and get another picture of the top (which I am loving) soon.
OMG where did you get that?!
