Pendleton wool skirt

Remember this one? I bought it probably a good three and a half years ago at Stella Vintage (plug plug plug). I repaired the hem at the beginning of the summer after taking down from an epically short length, and then never got around to basting and pleating it. I'm bringing it with me to Japan and finally gave in and took it to the dry cleaner for pleating. I justified the expense with the fact that I've probably saved a good deal on dry cleaning by handwashing all of my woolies and storebought sweaters and silks. $17 and some hand-sewing to take an "eh" skirt to a fabulous one?

Totally worth it.
