Initially I wasn’t going to blog about this skirt, but then I thought, “why not?” So here it is. It is one of my favorite patterns – McCall’s 3341. This is a very easy pattern for an A-line skirt which is flattering on just about anyone. This can be made in a few hours (yes it really is that easy). Honestly, it took me a few days because I got distracted – LOL!
This is made from a wine-colored corduroy. I didn’t make any changes to the pattern (which can be made in 5 lengths, by the way) but I did use an invisible zipper since that’s what I had and the color matched perfectly. There was a time, not too long ago, when I dreaded using invisible zippers because they were so difficult for me to get right. Now, I can hardly remember how to insert a regular zipper (I actually had to look it up). Practice makes progress as some people like to say.
The blouse in the picture is another McCall’s pattern – 2094. It may be OOP, but it’s a great basic blouse pattern with different sleeve lengths.
Anyway, that’s all for now. Happy sewing everyone!
