I recently bought quite a bit of fabric at a yard sale. All pieces, regardless of size, were .50 This piece was about a yard and a half of 54" wide non wale corduroy with a slight stretch. The color is eggplant. I have previously made Simplicity 2475 skirt from their Amazing fit collection, so I already had a fitted altered pattern. This is a very nice pattern. Easy to fit and modify. Great bones for alterations. It has paneled front and back for shaping and the back has inverted pleats for walking ease. I just love the fit of this skirt. The changes I incorporated into this skirt: I always move the side zip to the back. This allows me to complete the whole skirt and save the side seams for last, so I can get the fit just right without having to deal with zipper placement. I added slant pockets with a button closure to the front side panels. I enlarged the belt loops to be more tab like. I had to lessen the curve in the waist yokes to fit my thicker middle. I put button on the extended tabs as well. I really like how this skirt turned out. The pattern was .99 at a JoAnns sale, the zipper from a second hand score of a basket of zippers at $1 each. So $2.49 for the skirt. Got to love that!
