I found this fabric on super duper sale at Joanns and knew I would use it for something. it was 2.99 a yard! Super soft babycord in brown with little green dots on it. Lovely!
I changed the pattern by eliminating an elastic waist and having a zipper and button instead. Also, hemming a gored skirt is annoying, so I hemmed it with pretty lace out of my moms lace box (its so nice having a mother that lives nearby and has a studio full of wonderful sewing things!) I added darts in the front and back so it fits neatly over my tummy and bum. I am really pleased with the fit and how it hangs!
