Up next-Simplicity wool skirt

I am making a skirt using Simplicity 2343.  This will be my second time using this pattern; I am making the skirt that the model is wearing, the first skirt I made from this pattern was like the pink skirt in the upper left hand corner, minus the trim.  I like the ruffle on the skirt pocket.

This is the fabric I am using:

I acquired this three to four years ago while on a business trip in the Norfolk/Hampton Roads area of VA.  I remember the fabric store though the name fails me now.  I remember blogging about this but in transitioning from the old blogger to new, I think that post is now lost in cyberspace.  This is a wool fabric with nice yet soft body to it.  I also cut out a lining though the pattern does not call for one.  I cannot imagine me wearing wool without the lining.

I have enough left over to make this jacket using this McCall's pattern.  This pattern is not lined either but I will use the Stitch n Flip lining method which will work well with this pattern as there is a front and back piece along with collar pieces.

I was able to cut out the skirt pattern along with lining fabric yesterday.  I felt ill most of the day so my sewing plans did not work out as I had hoped.  And today is back to work.  I hope everyone has a good week.


  1. I think this will make an awesome skirt for work...a regular pencil skirt with a little something extra. Nice!
