So obviously I have used this skirt pattern before – three other times…so far. And I purchased this corduroy with the explicit intent to use it with this pattern. I used to own a RTW corduroy skirt in exactly this color back in my early to mid-20s. I loved it! It reminded me of school uniforms – which I never had to wear, so I can look at them with fondness and not contempt.
But then I realized one day that I was no longer in my mid-20s and the skirt was too short to wear to work. So it had to go.
But I had also gained some sewing skills and I realized I could make it again if I found the right fabric. And soon I had the right fabric! But it sat in my stash waiting for the right time.
And NOW is that time! And here it is.
