After that horrible shirt, I knew I needed to make something foolproof. But what? I'm really getting thrown by this change in seasons. It seems like 90% of my fabric is summery, and 5% is corduroy. Rummaging in the remaining 5% turned up a twill print I bought at the end of the season last year. That'll work! And just to make sure I'd have no problems, I turned to my favorite, New Look 6843.
Because it's a skirt for the winter, I added four inches to the length, but I'm not entirely happy with it. It could be that I'm still thinking of summery stuff, though, so I'm not going to make any changes just yet.
I used my trusty backwards method of attaching the waistband: pin it on, flip it up, fold it over, sew!
