Rhonda's Plaid Skirt
I am a regular reader of Rhonda's Creative Life, a sewing and fashion blog. The Wednesday, November 19, 2014 post Drafting the Raised Waist Skirt with a Back Flounce inspired me to create a quick plaid wool skirt. Rhonda's Creative Life features the directions for drafting the skirt pattern as well as interesting photos of plaid garment designs. Here is my version of the plaid skirt:
Flounce Skirt styled with multiple sweaters for Chicago winter weather
The wool plaid is heavyweight, with a "fuzzy" surface texture.
The flounce volume is attractive without being excessively full.
Next up are fur cap and sweater coat projects. Happy Thanksgiving!
