Move to the head of the class!

I decided a few days ago to make a skirt from some chocolate faux suede fabric that I had left over from a project I made a year ago. I had just enough to make a simple, slim or A-line short skirt. Last night when I went into my sewing room, after rifling through several skirt patterns in my pattern chest of drawers, I decided to make this. I am making view B, which is 24 inches in length. The other views are 17 inches (maybe years ago I could wear that) and 35 inches (not enough fabric and don't need another long skirt).

I pin fitted the pattern and then pressed and cut it out last night. Now that I have posted this brief entry for the morning, I off to start on it. DH and I are going to be Danville to visit family today, so want to get as much time in before we have to go.



  1. Ooh, I've had that pattern for ages but have yet to make it and I don't know why. I think your fabric will be perfect for it! Can't wait to see how it turns out.


  2. Just wanted to tell you that I really enjoy reading your posts. I'm a neighbor of sorts - grew up as a Bassett-girl! Now a Richmond-girl. The skirt pattern is great and can't wait to see the results!

  3. I have this too, and thanks for reminding me of it! I hope yours comes out well.
