Fall Corduroy Skirt and Knit Top
I love corduroy.
This very fine corduroy is made up in McCall's 6038, which is an asymmetrical pencil skirt of sorts.
The yellow knit top is another free Lekala, pattern number 5872, which is described as "Knitted Dress with Silk Collar." I obviously shorted it and omitted the silk collar and bow tie. Maybe this summer I'll make it as a dress AND use a silk collar with the bow tie.
Meanwhile, this knit is very thin, so I decided to double all pieces. It was easy enough to lay the main pieces along a fold and cut those double. Doing this meant that there is no hemline to sew.
I did not make an FBA - thinking that the gathers would be sufficient. I suppose they are - but next time I'll figure out how to make a slight FBA by simply rounding out the front seam under the arm to add just a bit more room.
The cardigan is Loes Hinse which I made up last spring.
Together, this is an outfit which is very comfortable and perfect for this breezy fall day.
