Wardrobe Basic

I needed a new basic skirt to replace a well worn one for my wardrobe. You know, a skirt that can be worn all year and fit in lots of circumstances. I decided on a cottn/lycra fabric (from the early spring mailout) in a khaki color. I didn't want a plain skirt and I noticed several magazines featuring button front skirts. I dug through some of my Mom's old patterns and found an OOP
(out of print) Butterick 3696.
I added the pocket from the jacket



and topstitched the front.



Now I have a skirt that will carry me through fall/winter with boots and sweaters or spring/summmer with sandals and T-shirts!

Now, YOU are just being too smart for your own good. That was so cool how you put the pocket on the skirt from the jacket. Only people, like yourself, would be creative like that! Look out world, ROZ is cutting it up and sewing it right! Love ya!
