FO Pleated Skirt - McCall 5523



Here is my first FO of the year. A pin-striped skirt with pleats in the back. I first saw this skirt on Amanda's blog and added it to my pattern wish list. I really love how it turned out. The fabric has very faint pin stripes with a nice texture to the gray fabric. This was from my fabric stash (purchased from Yardage Town). I made a straight size 12, but could have probably graded down to a size 10, keep only the waist at 12.



I really like how this looks. Perfect for work attire, while still being comfy. Next up is Butterick 4132, which I have already cut out the fabric for. I was hoping to wear it to work today, but didn't get it on the cutting board until 9:00 pm last night. Instead of screwing it up, I left it for tonight's project.

Here's to hoping that I wear it tomorrow......

Very cute! I have this pattern too, but just sew too slowly to have gotten round to it.

Very cute skirt!

I love the way the pleating makes a pencil skirt 'walkable'. I made a similar one in black from a Vogue pattern and I walk it to death.
