For whatever reason, I have an awful time sewing and knitting things that fit and are flattering on me (I think I'm in denial about the size of my ass). That's why I'm so happy with this skirt:





It fits sooooo well. Like it was made for me...

(Forgive the wrinkles- the pictures were taken right after I sat down to eat breakfast.)

The pattern is Simplicity 4091 and the fabric is a herringbone denim. The bottom is edged with rickrack. 'Cause rickrack rocks. Rickrack rocks. Rickrack rocks. Rickrack rocks. Fun to say.

Little more about it here (if you're brave enough to wade through all the knitting content).

Nice skirt, it is very flattering on you! It looks like it could be worn to work with a jacket or out for fun Smiley

I was just thinking that I need to make myself a few skirts for work. This looks like it might do the trick. It looks like we have a similar build Wink

Ive made this skirt twice, and plan on making it again soon.  its great, isnt it?  its such a flattering cut.  the flouce on it is simply adoreable.  and it works with a variety of fabrics, though i like it in a thicker fabric..

yours looks great!  very well done! Smiley

ha, neato.  i was looking at your blog, and i noticed you have the same built by wendy pattern i got.  weird.  have you made it?  i havent yet, because, well, i havent found the quite right fabric, and also, maybe it seems like it might be too...puffy, or ..something.  its not very fitted...but i suppose it could be cute if done right.

oh, one more thing:  that chemise is in a book by Celine Dupuy "simple sewing with a french twist".  another thing ive wanted to make for a while...  but.  well, you know.

ps, love that rickrock trim!

Thanks for all the comments! This is the first pattern I've ever wanted to sew again. I think I'll do it in a wool next time.

Which Wendy pattern do you mean? The empire waist top? I'm planning on trying that one out soon. I also have the mod-looking dress pattern, from which I'm only really planning on using the top part of the pattern. I've seen really great examples of that dress, but until I wake up to find my hips have disappeared in the night, I don't think it will work for me  Wink .
