McCall's 3341 skirt

I've been wanting to make myself another skirt, but just haven't gotten around to it. I just wanted something simple and basic. I've made this pattern before and I really like it. It's a great A-line skirt pattern with length variations (here's the pattern). I've made View D before, so that was already traced. I wanted something a little longer this time. So, rather than trace the pattern again, I just added 3" to the length. By the time I was done, I had cut off some of that, so I probably should have just added 1 1/2"-2", but everything worked out in the end. 


I used black corduroy that I've had in my fabric stash for probably 2 years now. Since I've joined the RTW fast, I'm also more conscious of how much fabric I have and trying to find a good use for it.


I feels good to get rid of one more piece of material and have it be something I like and can use.

  3. That's such a great pattern (it's my TNT skirt). I love it with the belt and boots -- it looks comfy, but polished. Nice job!

  5. Such a cute skirt Denise! I love corduroy! The close-up really highlights the fabric. I'm sure you'll get a lot of wear out of this one and be warm at the same time!
