Plaid Drop Waist Skirt.

Smashing my fabric stash this month.  I have had this beautiful plaid sitting in my stash for a couple of years.  Its a very nice Homespun Cotton Plaid Red/Green fabric from Joanns.  It has a very small mechanical stretch and the color is very vibrant.  This picture truly does it no justice.  I paired it with 3 tops that I got a thrift store, and I love each look. 




I used McCalls 6842, View "C":


Quick Review:

Ease of Use:  Very easy pattern, came together nicely,

Time:  From cut to finish (No zipper or Hem), about an hour total.  I did not match my plaids, though it came out ok.

Recommend:  Yes, highly recommend.

Fabric:  Homespun Cotton Plaid Red/Green from Joanns 

Notes:

Problems:  None

Happy Sewing!

  1. Very nice. I have a similar plaid in a poly/wool that has been in my stash for years too. Time to pull it out. Drop waist skirts are becoming popular again.

    1. Yes, Faye, I don't get much cool weather here, so I love to sport a little fallish when I can.
