Staying just as colorful but this time in a more............autumn direction, i've made my first skirt for the new season.



Good thing i just happened to have the perfect ribbon laying around, huh?

I have a few yards of this fabric left. Any idea what i should make with it?

One of those awesome little tailored jackets that are so "in" this season?  It would make the cutest suit with that skirt, mensweary, but all the more sexy for it.
Anyway, great skirt!  I really love the colors in that fabric.

i have No experience with making lingerie of any sort  Undecided

the jacket (blazer?) could work, but this fabric is a light cotton. not exactly ideal for a jacket, i'd think. then again, i've never made a jacket......so maybe there's a way to make it work?

I think a jacket would be major overkill with this pattern if you wore the two together (no offense intended to those who suggested it, I'm just not a fan of all-plaid outfits). How about a headband/hat, a little cuff bracelet, a large barrette, and/or a handbag? Of course, if you have yardS you will still have some left... You could always make a skirt for your best girlfriend, or make one to put on Ebay... ^_^

although katie thinks it would look tacky i'd probably do jacket. Tongue just cause it would be fun. and you don;t have to wear them together but you could. you'd have to be more daring that in am thought to pull it off.

(edit)btw great skirt. and don't you just love when you have the perfect trims and such for a project. yay crafty supplies.

I was thinking a jacket like this : http://www.bloomingdales.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=35167&CategoryID=221 or this: http://www.bloomingdales.com/catalog/product/index.ognc?ID=38075&CategoryID=221   You know, using that same little ribbon detail.

I can see the whole, whoa, that's a ton of plaid drawback to an outfit like that, but I think it could totally be cool looking too.  Or you could just wear it with jeans or whatever.

Anyway, a tailored jacket with light weight fabric would be hard to pull off, unless you interline it well.  You could maybe just use interfacing on the back of each piece, but it might be a bit stiff.  Or you could use a firmer fabric as an interlining, that would probably work well.

Other things that would be adorable in that plaid:  slacks, a backpack (there's just something about that fabric that says "back to school" to me, um... circle skirt with the plaid cut bias and chevroned on the front, back and side seams?  or for that matter, any gored skirt cut so the plaid would chevron.

Hope you find something to use it for, those colors are just perfect for autumn.

How did you get such pretty knees!?

I am insanely jealous at the moment. In fact, I'm tempted to sue my parents for gene pool contamination.

Big words are grand!

I love the skirt, the length is perfect and I love the front!!!!

When I am a famous person, you'll be my fashion slave, yes?
