After whining in this post about not being able to find the perfect brown skirt anywhere, I pulled out the ole cutting board and whacked my own out of the brown thrifted corduroy I mentioned. I can make it just the way I want.
I'm so happy with the resulting skirt that I'm wearing it to the football game sweet hubby and I are attending this afternoon with our son at his college (which happens to be only about 10 minutes from our home).
I decided the skirt was a little plain when made right by the pattern so I added a center front seam and my own back pocket design.
You can't see the shoes I'm wearing, but they are my new favorites. I ordered them from here and I'm loving them for fall! They are so comfy and go with all my fall skirts. I've never had real Italian shoes before! Hey, a girl's got to splurge some time. Just think of all that money I saved by making my own skirt!
So, that's the big finale for my "Finish Up My Projects Week." Thank you for joining me this week. I appreciate every visit and every comment. Now, I'm going out to enjoy this perfect fall weekend!
