I bought some dark purple pinwale corduroy with the intent of making a pair of pants for miss O. Then I pulled out the pattern and remembered how long it took me to sew the same pattern a few years ago when I made a pair for miss E... toooo long. So I sifted through my Ottobre books looking for inspiration and eventually came to my only womans' book. A basic skirt pattern, designed just for me! I had *just* enough material for it.
I am not a fan of zips, but I did it (very carefully) and I am very pleased with how it turned out. Now to find a top to go with my new skirt! :)
