New skirt in the works

I cut out the crepe fabric for the Simplicity skirt this evening.  I decided the crepe fabric would need to be lined and fortunately I had a good shade of pale lining fabric to use; the lining is cut out also.    I plan to start sewing on it tomorrow.

I am now considering what the knit fabric top should look like.  The model is wearing a closer fitting top which I think is rather appropriate for this type skirt.  I have several new knit top patterns acquired this year so I am sure I will be able to find one.

More updates later.


  1. This looks like a classic keeper of a skirt. I love the way it drapes, and your wool crepe will make a lovely skirt. Gives me some ideas for a couple of pieces of wool crepe in my stash!
