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.

Thanks, Kris! Appreciate your comment.

Ho ho ho - THE Carolyn complimented me? Carolyn, while I gave Mondo the credit for inspiration, can you find YOUR inspiration in my skirt? The panel (reminiscent of your red/white dress) and the cording (reminiscent of many of your garments). You have taught me soooo much!

I love the way you've played with the directions of the houndstooth. Simple, but very effective.
