I’ve got one more old project to share with you, and this one happens to also be inspired by Call the Midwife. Around the same time that I decided I needed a burgundy cardigan, I realized that a plaid, wool, circle skirt would fit well into my wardrobe. One of the characters on that show wears one when she’s off work, and I fell in love with it and wanted to make my own. I told my mom that I was on the lookout for the right fabric for it, and she bought me this plaid wool for my birthday in 2013.
The wool sat around in my stash until September or October of 2014 when I dug the fabric out to finally sew it into a skirt. I got most of it assembled, but then I put it aside to work on my Halloween costume. And then I didn’t sew for months. I finally got it back out last Saturday to finish it up. It just needed me to insert a zipper, fold over the waistband, and add a hem. I did a simple hem using bias tape, and the skirt was done in only a few hours. It’s silly how long it took me to finish it when there was so little left to do, but at least it’s done now. I suspect that it will get worn quite a bit.
