Today my dh and I visited Pola Museum of Art and enjoyed the special exhibition devoted to the work of Claude Monet and his contemporaries. I love this museum which locates in a thick and beautiful forest of Hakone and owns a superb collection of Impressionist art. I was wearing a tweed skirt which I made some time ago, so I took a chance for photographing it against unusual backgrounds as well. This is just another (tucked) elastic waistband skirt, and I have almost nothing to say about it... but I really like it at all.

The museum opened a promenade in its backyard (practically, the backyard is a genuine natural forest) some months ago, and of course we had to check how it was too. It was simply a quiet woodland with a lovely promenade. We really loved it at all.

By the way, I am an audio guide mania, you may see it in the pics. That is one of the wonderful inventions of human beings, ever!

Tweed pull-on skirt
pattern: "gather skirt" from polka drops (a Japanese pattern shop)
lined. lengthened by 10cm(4 inches).
fabric: Cotton tweed. blue and white, dry, flow-y, light and soft.

The blog post for my first elastic waistband skirt from the same pattern is, here.

Take care!


  1. Beautiful. How do manage to always look so chic? Lovely skirt!

  2. I agree with Margo...I wish I always looked so polished and put together. Your skirt is beautiful!

  3. It's beautiful, and will look really nice with your new pink top too :)

  4. Very pretty skirt and the Museum looks so interesting!

  5. Can we have a picture of your work space - sewing machine, overlocker, ironing board etc.?

    1. Hi Lisa, I've posted a picture of my space.
