Skirts on the sewing agenda!

Skirts are my next projects. This OOP Vogue skirt took up most my attention today. I spent some time reading reviews of this skirt pattern on PR. I am going to make View C in lavender wool crepe. I spent all morning pin fitting and making adjustments. The pattern is now ready to cut out.

The other skirt pattern that I pulled out to work on is this Butterick pattern. I also read reviews for this skirt on PR. I am going to make View B. I have a black mini herringbone fabric that I got in a fabric bundle from Fabric Mart that as soon as I saw the fabric I visualized a skirt. I need to pin fit this pattern.

I am traveling to Durham, NC tomorrow AM to visit my father who suffers from Alzheimer's and lives in an assisted living home there. There will be no sewing time tomorrow. Tuesday, after PT, I plan to move forward with the skirts.

Neither patterns call for a lining but I will add it as I like the fit and feel of linings in skirts.


  1. I love the Vogue skirt pattern. Thanks for posting the link. I love your blouse. Have a safe trip.

  2. Oooo, I just LOVE that Vogue pattern!! I actually bought that Butterick pattern, and I hope to get to it some time this next year.

    Can't wait to see your new skirts!

  3. I'm thinking of making the Butterick skirt pattern for my niece. Our sewing group is meeting tomorrow in Raleigh at 10 A.M. We're next door to Durham. Tomorrow we are training young sewers that received new sewing machines for Christmas. It should be fun. We'll have about 5 young ladies meeting with us. Travel safely!! If you're in town, we would like to have you join us for some sewing fun.
