Complementary Garment for May's MAGAM: Red Pencil Skirt from Table Cloth!!!!

I couldn't resist making a red skirt to go with my 1940s peplum, gals.

Excited to take the peplum on a spin I made this skirt Sunday morning so I could wear the ensemble to worship that morning at 10:00 a.m.  It is simply a tapered skirt with elastic waistband; no kick pleat and I eliminated side pockets.  This was repurposed from a tablecloth!  I am sure it is a polyester fabric.

It was comfy and I enjoyed wearing it.  Seriously got a love affair with piping going on, LOL.  Now to tackle making it myself with matching fabric on an upcoming garment.

As always, more pics on the blog.




  1. You are really on a sewing roll, Lyric. The skirt is lovely - and I'm a great believer in the elastic waist for a quick skirt make.

    1. Hello Lady Sarah Liz:

      Yes, I was. Had sew much to do last several months in preparation for a sojourn to welcome my new granddaughter into this world (June, 2014). Between sewing for me, crocheting for her, learning to quilt (my first quilt was a Baby Rag Quilt for her) my fingers have been in a whiz with keeping up with my MAGAM challenge commitments. It's been a blast!

      Now, June is upon us and I've known what I am going to do for a while. It'll be a doozey, giggles. I'm excited. Can you tell?

      As always, thank you for the encouragement.



  2. WOW ! So beautiful! I love the contrasting trim. I can't wait to make this pattern for myself. Great job !
