The story of a denim skirt!

I have a skirt!!!  Just an ordinary skirt which I bought many, many years ago (between 15 and 20 at a guess).  

When I bought it it was almost ankle length and was plain with a flair insert (see picture below).  Made of denim it quickly became a favourite.  

A few years later it wasn’t fashionable anymore as it was too long.  Out came the scissors and several inches were cut off and again it regained the status of ‘favourite’.  

Another few years on and it was again at the back of the wardrobe.  Why didn’t I like it anymore?  

Several hours of thought went into that question and I decided it was the now ‘out of date’ with the big buttons down the front.  So, off they came and the buttonholes were covered with a denim strip.  

So, what is the point of the story?  Well I decided that I liked the style and length of it but it's now feeling a little dated again.  More another day!

I look forward to seeing another new look for the skirt. If it was me, I'd probably have gone on wearing it as is, regardless of prevailing fashion!

Another Jane makeover! It will be fun to watch the reincarnation of the skirt.

Well done! I've never worn a denim skirt. Perhaps I should!

Oh, Jane I’ll certainly not be throwing it away!!! It;’s got many more miles in it still!!

My denim skirt is in spare room wardrobe as it is about 3 sizes too small. Still won't get rid of it though!

That makes me chuckle, Anonymous! I’d do exactly the same. Actually I suppose that means I’ve not put on too much weight since I bought it as it still fits me - unless, of course, the denim has stretched!!!

I am wondering if this is a hint that tatting will be adorning and embellishing it soon. ;)
