When looking in my closet, I realized something. I forgot to show you a madras plaid skirt I made last year. Yeah, as in 2009. Well, better late than never.
I had a real affinity for madras plaid last year. So when I found this fabric at JoAnn's I knew it was destined to become a retro-style skirt. Unlike my other full skirt, I think this one works for me. Instead of the fullness starting at my waist, it's fitted on the top due to pleating and then flares out.
This was an easy pattern with (I think) a cute result. Don't be surprise if you see it again using some other fabric.
If you're interested, here are some stats:
Fabric: Madras plaid fabric found at JoAnn's
Yardage: 2 3/4

Date started and completed: Labor Day Weekend 2009
Oh, and of course, this skirt is totally Betty compatible. Isn't that what really matters?
