More Skirts & Fall Sewing #10

I did make two more skirts for a lady from our Church.  She was very pleased and they were such an easy piece to sew up! Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures!

I ended up liking the skirt and made myself a pattern.  After two muslin attempts I finally had a skirt I liked.  I  had to eliminate the pockets for myself.  Once I added the elastic, the pockets wanted to poke out.....?  Must be my curviness!

I had this brown plaid fabric from my stash since I don't know when and it was screaming to be sewn up as a skirt.  It turned out great!  I know you can't see the blue plaid but it's so subtle that I think this skirt will a staple this fall and winter.

I also made another of the Silhouette #2913 Nick & Zoe's skirt.  I used a faux suede in a green/grey.  I love how the skirt turned out.  The topstitching made the skirt.   I think I may be ready for Fall even though it's going to be 88 degrees today!

I chose the brown for topstitching.  The faux suede is no really brown but the greens stood out too much.

What color topstitching?
