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.
