Stashbusting Sewalong skirt

My second Simplicity 2152 skirt – and the first of my Stashbusting Sewalong makes.

The fabric is teal gabardine from ebay, with an interesting black backing which makes a kind of underlining for the skirt.  Also makes it a pain to press – still some work to do on that.

I love the panels and pocket placement on this pattern.  It’s extremely flattering to a post-Christmas tummy!  I’ve worn my navy cord version of this skirt a lot.

My serger (no, can’t get through a post without mentioning it) was so useful for finishing the seams without the bulk of binding them.  Speedy too.

  1. Fab skirt, I love that colour, I don’t know anybody who doesn’t look good in it. And I feel the need to be honest – I have serger envy! I’m not proud of myself! 😉

  2. lovely skirt! I am wearing my version right now. 😛 Dont you love the pockets? Loving the fabric you chose!

  3. Lovely! Teal is one of my favourite colours – Jacq is right, there’s hardly anyone it doesn’t suit.

    I’m still unsure on the serger issue, but you’re slowly convincing me!

  4. I love the pocket placement – very cool design feature! 🙂 A nice skirt is seriously (IMO) the best place to inject colour into your wardrobe, isn’t it? I have a royal blue one I wear all the time, styled pretty much just like yours! ^__^

  5. Teal gabardine. I swoon. Love this, especially those pockets. Killer stashbusting, girl!

  6. Whoohoo! What a good stashbuster pattern 🙂 Have you worn it much?

  7. Lovely skirt! the colour is really pretty. looks like the fit is spot on. Well done!

  8. This skirt is absolutely gorgeous!! I just love the pockets 🙂
