Music Class Skirt

It's starting to feel a bit like fall here, and I love it! Definitely my favorite time of year. And the perfect time for a new corduroy skirt!

Way back on Mother's Day the kids & husband gave me the Oliver + S Music Class Skirt pattern and I just now got the chance to sew one up. As always, love those Oliver + S patterns! So many times I come across pattern directions that aren't clear, so I muddle through a step hoping it all works out in the end. But I never have that problem with Oliver + S patterns. Is there an O + S fan club? I would totally join.

The fabrics are two prints from the Happy Together corduroy collection by Timeless Treasures. And I actually remembered to check which way the corduroy felt smooth and rough before I cut out the pattern. The last time I worked with corduroy, I ended up having to re-cut a dress panel because I didn't think about the fabric nap. Look at me, learning from my past mistakes!

The best part of this skirt is the pleats on the side panels. And cute pockets!

It's great for running too!
