Glitter Pinecone Christmas Skirt

I try not to impulse buy, especially when it comes to fabrics.  However, this one certain Christmas fabric continued to call to me day after day... So after a couple weeks I determined this would NOT be an impulse buy and that I really, truly liked it.  So I bought three yards of this glitter pinecone fabric!

And what do you do with sparkly Christmas pinecone fabric?  You make a gaudy Christmas skirt, of course!  (At least, that's what I do!)  I whipped this together and made a simple skirt and matching 40s duster cap.  In an upcoming post this week I'll show you how to make a pleated skirt like this without a pattern, so stay tuned! 

I paired it with my new 1940s winter coat and 1970s boots.  I am in pretty desperate need of winter clothing, and these two items do the trick perfectly!  Unluckily... the U.S. is having its warmest winter ever, pretty much, so I haven't needed them as much as I would normally.  But I don't care, I shall wear them happily!

  1. Adorable outfit! I love it! Love the way you style things :-)

  2. That fabric is SO gorgeous - and I absolutely adore the matching cap! And your coat! And your sweater! Your outfits are always perfect :)

  3. You look great! I just gave in and purchased some holiday fabric from Joann Fabrics over the weekend. Their sale was hard to pass up. :p Love the coat! I've bought two different coats from Wildfell Hall this fall/winter. (I love Amy's shop!) Can't wait for the second to show up. It's been unusually warm here in Vermont which is good and bad. Good because it means I can still get away with wearing my fall coat but bad because it doesn't feel Christmas-y yet. Even with the tree all decorated.

  4. ahhh love it! That pattern was definitely worth the purchase. Great job on the whole outfit.
