Move over Mondo
Well, not really. But this was certainly inspired by him.
LOVE this fabric!
Large houndstooth was on my wish list for my Thanksgiving trip to G street so I was thrilled when I spied this.
I used a poly fabric cut on the bias for the cording. It has a wee little check pattern, but I don't think you can see it.
I used Simplicity 9825 for the basic pattern, but I tweaked the pattern last year for another skirt and I used that tweak for this as well. The Simplicity has one seam down the front and back (with a back zipper). This version has two seams front and back with a side zipper.
I still need to hem the skirt and lining, and sew on a hook and eye.
I'm having a casual day so no photo of me modeling it until later this week.
