Plaid Pencil Skirt

It took me 3 weeks to make this simple, simple skirt. 
The fabric was bought at JoAnn's and most likely won't last long, but it's okay.
It's lined and the lining has a bit of lace on the edge.
I didn't have Jay take photos of the lining, but you can sorta see the lace
peeking out from the bottom of the skirt - so frustrating. 

The pattern is simplicity 2154 and I really want to try the cardigan from this pattern.
I added 2" to the length of the skirt and pegged the hem a bit more.
But then I hemmed it 2", so.

The dog had to be in the picture.
I have a pink sweater the same color as the pink in the plaid.
Maybe next time, pink would be better than white.


  1. Love the plaid! Great colors. I'm curious about the cardi. Make one already!! ;)

    (And of course the dog had to be in the photo. Love it.)

  2. looks great with this sweater!
    i had to laugh about adding 2 inches and then hemming that much off because i've done that myself a few times too. :)

  3. I think the pink would be a good color with this skirt, but I also think the dog is a great accessory. He's just the right color! It looks good on you.

  4. I love your new skirt and the WHITE sweater is lovely with it... Good GOing girl

  5. Fabulous plaid skirt! I hear ya about taking three weeks to sew something. Sewing time just seems to be so limited lately doesn't it?

    I LOVE that the dog has to be in the photo! My babies are getting older and I miss the days when they when they tried to be in every one of my photos.

  6. Wonderful skirt - it looks great on you!

  7. Great skirt!!! I like it with the white but would like to see it with pink too ~ love your pictures and how cool that you are adding a watermark!!! I'm thinking about doing that too.... Have a wonderful weekend ~

  8. The skirt is beautiful and I think you chose the perfect sweater to go with it. I'd like to see the pink too but I really like the white!! I wish I could sew like you!

  9. I love plaid and your skirt looks wonderful! I think the pink will also be beautiful with the skirt.
