Still sewing from my stash and made two skirts in different styles from the same plaid. One is Burda Sidonie A-line skirt (downloaded when the patterns were free) and the other is Ottobre 5/2008 #4. My preference is for the Sidonie (first 3 pics). I like the Ottobre (last 3 pics) but have some issues – couldn’t get the plaid to match at the seams, zipper is wavy/ripply and even with interfacing I couldn’t fix it to my liking. It’s not hemmed. Rest assured, I would never wear this shirt with the skirt as it doesn’t match at all but it does provide contrast to see the skirt at the waist. I’m very proud of how the plaid matches up on the Sidonie! I think the Sidonie will be a much worn fall/winter skirt and the Ottobre may get repurposed as a skirt for my daughter.
Wool plaid purchased from Value Village for around $4.00.
