Foxy Gal!

I spent a very pleasant Sunday stitching up this cute 

fox corduroy....


into a sweet skirt....


for my sister.

The foxy gal!

It is a simple six gore A-line pattern,

(Simplicity #5914

which now seems to go by the #1560)

that comes together very quickly!


I'd love to make another one for myself!

Do you make your own clothes?


Happy sewing!

  2. Oh, that's a lovely skirt! You definitely have to make one for yourself as well! I usually don't sew my own cloth - I love to go shopping instead :-) Combined with a good lunch and a glass of wine and a chat with a friend... :-)

  5. So darned sweet! That fabric is neat, and she looks good in it! I'm sure she appreciates your talent. No such relationship with my own sister. I love to sew garments, and really... for many years I sewed way more clothes than I did quilts. While I still make a few things for myself - tops and skirts - the only other garment sewing I do is make shorts for our four growing little grandsons. I'm glad for you that you could sew for your sister.

  6. This is a great pattern, very flattering, and the fabric is too cute! You better make yourself one now :) I have a stack of fabric set aside for making a few summer tops. I learned how to sew clothes before quilts. Still fun to make something for myself once in a while.

  7. That is a lovely fabric, although I couldn't see the foxes at first, all I could see was clamshells :) Yes, you should definitely make another one for yourself.

  8. very cute skirt. I wish I looked good in skirts. I am too short waisted. They cut me in half!

  9. That looks wonderful Susan. I used to sew clothes for my children and myself but then quilting got in the way. I do have a few fabrics and patterns I'd like to sew up - one day ... I hope you make a skirt for yourself.

  11. I used to make my own clothes in the days when it was cheaper to make something than it was to buy it. I'm not sure that is true now - but I still make things for the grandchildren! I'd love to do more - but it seems there are only 24 hours in the day ... Lynne.

  12. That's odd - part of my comment went missing! I also said how much I liked the skirt and the fox fabric!

    Your sister has a rather funky haircut too, from what I can see.

  15. What a fun skirt!! It's fun to see a photo of your sister. I've made clothes a few times but I never enjoy it like I enjoy making quilts. It's a shame because I have a whole shelf of fabrics I've bought for making skirts lol.

  16. This skirt is simply begging for a foxy lady Kath and Kim comment, but I will resist the temptation. :)
    It is very cute. I would wear it.
