I got on a bit of a roll, making mundane clothing for every-day wear… the black and white pinstripe pencil skirt, the printed plaid pencil skirt, the printed plaid circle skirt, and finally this purple, grey, white, and black plaid circle skirt.

Working on some mundane clothing while I ponder my next costuming project, and how it will come together… This is a purple, black, and white plaid circle skirt and I am installing the back zipper. . 🎨👗🎨 #sewingMachine #sewing #homemade #diyFashion #DIY #fashionblogger #Fashion #plaid #skirt #uniqueVintage #pinUpStyle
I allowed the skirt to hang for a few nights to let the hem ‘fall out’ (it didn’t by any noticeable amount.. thankfully) and then serged the raw edge, letting it gather just slightly… this made it a lot easier to fold up to press a hem into it (ease the hem), and finally top-stitch the hem by machine.
I took photos in the last few days of fall before the snow started to fall… I’m wearing this with tall black boots, black tights, and a tight black sweater along with my usual Viking-themed pendants.
