This is an idea for the skirt I plan to make. I actually saw a similar skirt in an earlier Nordstrom catalog; I thought I had scanned the page from it but I am not finding the photo scan or the catalog. This is close enough.
The pattern is Vogue 8928.
The fabric is a purchase from Vogue Fabrics in 2013. This is labeled as suiting fabric in a warm rose color. I also purchased two knit fabrics with this suiting fabric. One knit is a ruffle knit in the same color; the other knit is very light weight floral print with the flowers being a warm rose color on an off-white background. If I use the lighter knit it will require a knit lining.
The pattern adjustments have been made after pin fitting. I hope to cut it out tomorrow. I discovered some kind of "oil" leak with my car and may have to spend time at the car dealers after my much awaited mani/pedi tomorrow morning.
More fabric arrived earlier this week and will share with you in an upcoming post.
