Seemed like a good idea at the time!
I came across a piece of beige corduroy in the op shop that I bought to make a skirt. I fancied a button front skirt but these are prone to gaping across my stomach so I decided to make mine a faux button front.
The pattern I used was my trusty Vogue 1247, adapted of course. I put in a zip in the back and extended the front to include my faux placket. I lengthened it to sit just below my knee. The lining I used was a piece of pongee that also came from the op shop.
The skirt was a pretty simple make and nearly got finished in time for winter when doubts started to creep in. You see, I don't wear skirts at home, instead preferring jeans and shorts depending on the season.
Because the skirt is made of corduroy it really isn't work appropriate except maybe on casual Friday. Unusually for me this skirt became a ufo for well over a month. Eventually though it had given me the stink eye long enough and I took it and my jeans buttons to the garage and took to it with a hammer. Phew! Job done! I will hang it up now and see if it gets worn next winter.
