Happy Mother’s Day to all moms, moms-to-be, and those who are like-a-mom!
In an earlier review of this skirt pattern, I noted that I would make it again. I did sew it with the intention of making a coordinating top and skirt outfit for Mother’s Day. Well, here it is in a red linen frabric from JoAnn Fabrics. I did make a lining for this version. I am sewing a knit top to coordinate with this skirt, but due to a week beyond my control, was unable to finish it in time for Mother’s Day (sigh). It looks okay with this jacket and camisole, but not exactly what I planned.
Here’s the kick pleat. I used the same fabric for the insert.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
