A few months ago I got it in my head that I desperately needed a brown corduroy skirt. In that how on earth have I survived this long without one sort of way. I mean really how does anyone survive without one? Does that ever happen to you? I bought two yards of baby whale cord and dug through my pile of patterns.
Simplicity 2512 view D. I actually bought it initially with view A in mind but found myself drawn to this version. The reviews were good though I'm glad I read them because this pattern is high wasted and short which is a problem since I am also high waisted and tall. As in 5 feet 9 and a half inches tall most of which is legs. I slashed this pattern and added the oh so not magical but totally the width of my ruler 3inches. I'm glad I did. It would have been indecent on my without.
Hope you like. I've worn it 3 times now and am pretty sure I do. It looks better my shirt tucked in so I'm adjusting to that idea. The other thing I want to point out even though it is stating the obvious is that this is not an aline skirt or even a straight skirt. This think is widest at the hips and nips in towards the waist and knees. Its a neat style but I'm not sure I realized that till I made it so I'll give you the benefit of my experience.
