Another vintage plaid skirt

I had fun with this skirt--I got a bunch of fun patterns for work recently and made several of them so far.  Here's this skirt pattern, Simplicity 2315.
I didn't know for sure what fabric I wanted to use, but while perusing ModCloth I saw these cute sort of decorated plaid skirts:

And I knew I had some great vintage Pendleton plaid wool I got at Goodwill ages ago.  I made a capelet jacket kind of thing out of it a while ago but still had some.  I would NEVER wear them together, haha, but here's the skirt that came out of the process!
Cute, not too preppy or classic because of the style, but still love that great Pendleton print.  It's a little wooly rather than suiting weight, so it's not super professional or stuffy at all, but would totally work with tights and boots on a Friday or something!

I am having so much fun dressing nicely for work every day!


  1. I love that fabric!!!! It's a great pattern as well.

  2. wow, great job! love it!

  3. loving the skirt! it would look so great with boots :)

  4. Wow! I love the colors in that skirt.

  5. Definitely not too preppy. You've been making some classic work wear.

  6. This is such a cute skirt. You are building a great work wardrobe!

  7. Looks great...and I just love the fabric :)
