Fabric used: 3 yards for the skirt and it's lining
Today I went to the dentist for the third of 4 visits to complete some crown work. I'm not sure why the visit warranted a skirt, except that it made me feel better to start out the morning dressed a bit nice.
This A-line skirt is from S 4951 and the top is M 5890. I've recycled the Simplicity pattern now as I have lots of skirt patterns and I'm not overly happy with the draft of this one. The skirt is just too wide below the yoke. I've used the pattern three times and each time have shaved a bit more width from the skirt...It had it's chance :-) The McCalls pattern is one I'll keep and use for lots of easy travel pieces. This little black shell is about a year old and not one of my faves because the RPL knit is "sticky".
The fabric, floral cotton with a wonderful drape, was bought in Portland, OR last year. I have some left so you may see this floral again.
