What I'm Wearing Tomorrow

ETA:  Monday Morning..... I still look tired and my lining in my skirt is making a lot of swishing sounds.. or its it my jacket...lol
 

New Look 6915 with Simplcity 2475.  The skirt was worked up almost 2 weeks ago and finally have a top for it since I didn't want to wear a black top.




Pattern Description: Misses skirt in two lengths with individual pieces given for slim, average, and curvy fit
with a contoured waistband sitting below the waist.  Also with pocket flap option and two back kick pleats




Pattern Sizing: 6-14

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes, but I made sure to mark the various pieces to ensure I matched the corresponding pieces. I was nervous about doing the kick pleat and to my surprise the instructions were thorough providing easy construction. 

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I really like the kick pleat detail



Fabric Used: poly/wool blend

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: There was a bit of ease and initially removed 1/4"  from the back side panels, but had to remove additional excess fabric after another fitting.  Also cut a few inches from the hem

Would you sew it again? I would like to make another one with constrasting stitching

Conclusion: A lovely pencil skirt that would fit perfectly in any wardrobe.

Kick pleats are so nice! It's a funny name if I translate to my language:)
I also love your tops, nice neckline.
