Plaid skirt with pockets

I had been wanting to use this vintage skirt pattern for a while, and thought it would be best to pair it with this vintage plaid fabric. I mean why not?

Skill level: This sewing project would be good for intermediate sewers.
Time commitment estimate: It took me about 5 hours total, including cutting the pattern and ironing the fabric.

If you want to make this Simplicity skirt for yourself, check out this link for supplies I use for just about every project. Additional sewing supplies you’ll need are listed below:

1. Fabric – I would recommend something that’s machine washable. If you choose to do a plaid or a stripe, just keep in mind you’ll need extra fabric to make sure that the side seams match up.

2. Buttons – I actually used vintage buttons as well. Check the back of the pattern for size and quantity.
3. Pattern – I used Simplicity 6037.

I like the opening because it’s actually hidden in the pocket. To be honest, it was a bit confusing for me to figure out at first, but it was a fun challenge to do something other than a zipper closure.
