A Corduroy Crescent Skirt

I am currently making corduroy pants and I bought the fabric on a whim at Joann, somehow thinking that 2 yards would be enough for pants. And it was, for everything except the fronts of the pants. Haha. So I had to go back, but my brother was rushing me and I bought 1.5 yards of more grey corduroy. 

Now, did I bring a piece to match? No.
Did I get home and wash it before checking? Yes.
Did they match? No.

The second piece is slightly darker and a finer wale, so in the end I made it into a skirt. It's a Sewaholic Crescent skirt in view B in a size 2. I made no changes and didn't bother trying it on until I was done. It fit, of course. 

Here is the back:
 The corduroy sometimes looks weird in different light, on the yoke because the lines are pointing in different directions. It is also very poofy.
 Half the day, I wore my shirt tucked in and felt like a doof. The other half, I untucked my sweater but felt like a lumpy tube. I am very undecided about this skirt.
Look at that face! Gross. 
 T-Rex broke off an entire toenail charging through the door and then getting his foot run over by the door. It really hurt him and he spent two days limping and moping, but now he has pepped back up!

  1. I love your skirt, very cute and perfect for fall and winter. I think I like the sweater out, I am so used to shirts and tops out I can't get used to the tucked in look!

  2. I love your skirt! I think it looks great with your top tucked in or loose. :)
