I had some dark brown fine wale corduroy left over from a project a long time ago, just under a yard left. It was enough for a basic pencil skirt, but to make it more fun, I wanted something with a little more shape or interest that still wouldn't use too much fabric.
I had this pattern, Simplicity 2343, and thought it was a nice way to give a little detail to a simple skirt. I used basically view D, in a shorter length.
Here it is!
(Also: check it out! I took these pics!! With my new remote. I feel so high tech. ;) )
If you look real close, you can see the triangle shape in front... flattering, I think!
Pretty practical and wearable!
I'm sure I'll get at least a little wear out of it before spring comes and I'm not in the mood for corduroy or dark brown anymore! ;)
And don't worry, I won't wear it with a white blouse by itself. I'll think of something much more interesting. How would you wear it?
