The Skirt is Finished!

The time is here and the plaid skirt (Hollywood 1326) has finally been finished. A lot of time went into this and a few mistakes deterred it, but I love the results. I chose to line the skirt for added stability; both for the pleat and the fabric. The plaid corduroy is vintage and felt like it could use a helping hand. You may notice it doesn't entirely match up...Well, I'll let you in on a little secret, the grain of the fabric on the back is upside down! I barely had 2 yards of this fabric so I had to work some major magic!

What do you think?


  1. Looks Great!!! Love the lining colour too! the covered buttons add some pizazz to that already amazing waistline shape!!! great job :-)

  2. I really love the shape of the waistband. Great job!

  3. I love how the skirt turned out--the plaid is fantastic! :)
