The End of Corduroy Days

Well, I think I'll be wearing corduroy for a while still since there's still snow on the ground, but it's hard to imagine sewing a corduroy skirt in March.  Not when there's some lovely spring and summer fabrics to work with anyway!

Corduroy prints for grown-ups can be so hard to find.  I love corduroy but I certainly don't want to look like a six-year-old when wearing it.  I had to put in some serious ogling time to find these (window shopping online is such hard work!)

Marcia's skirts:
From Stone Fabrics (UK)

from GorgeousFabrics.com

I had to give this otherwise plain skirt a little sumthin sumthin

Melissa's skirt:
from Vogue Fabrics

This was fun!

Bryn's pencil skirt:
I bought this from a de-stasher on Etsy - same fabric I used for my own skirt last year

Lara's hidden pocket skirt:
I made a pencil skirt for Diane with this fabric last year (fabric.com) and had just enough leftover for another skirt

Marides' gored skirt:
from JoAnn's!

Jen's skirt:
another de-stasher on Etsy
I hope I get this lucky next year!

  1. This time of year is such a conundrum, sewing- (and knitting-) wise! I have a huge list of things I want to make for spring, but I really ought to be knocking out those last few winter projects while there's still time to wear them! What to do?! So little time, so much to do!

    1. I know, I'm always want to make things that I can wear right away, but I should really get started on my longer projects ahead of time. I need dedicated pre-season sewing!

  2. Cute skirts.....are you lining the corduroy? This year I am actually thinking of sewing Spring/Summer clothes early, so I have something new ready to wear when the weather improves. We'll see how my plans work out LOL!

    1. I always line corduroy unless a particular client doesn't want it. But I love linings - I even line my denim skirts! Good luck with your pre-season sewing!

  3. I love the striped skirt where you changed the stripe at the hem. Such a cool design feature!

    1. Thank you - I think stripes are just begging to be turned this way and that!
