New job - New skirt

Yesterday I started a new job - I'm still working for the same government department that I've worked for over the past two years. But I have a brand new role in a brand new team and I have so much to learn!
I think that a new job requires something new tow wear - in this case a brand new sailor skirt made by me! This photo is taken in the car park of our building. The body corp doesn't clean the windows and it doesn't kill the weeds in the car park either. I'm glad we are only renting and don't own our apartment - if we did own this apartment I think the body corporate would make me completely crazy.
Here's the print on the skirt - its all lighthouses and boats. I have admired this fabric at Arthur Toye fabric for a long time. When they started one of their famous "half price sales" I couldn't resist picking up a couple of metres.

Here's a few more outfit details:

OUTFIT DEETS:

Shoes & Necklace - Op Shops
Skirt - Made by Me

Really glad that your new job is working out okay - what a great reason for a new skirt! I love the fabric. Red white and blue is always a good match.
