Blue Checked Skirt - done!

Well, it has one pattern piece, and two seams - easy enough!

The inspiration behind this skirt came from two places. First - there's the Louis Vuitton fall collection.

Then, there was Bull Durham. It's been playing on TV, and in ads for it, I saw that Susan Sarandon was wearing a great black & white large checked skirt with very similar lines.

So, when I was at Fabricland a few weeks ago (yeah, I was. Bad Reethi!) I bought some of this blue checked fabric (fabric on sale - $2 a meter; pattern - Simplicity 4236 - view C) to recreate the look.

Here's my version.

Biscuit is always very interested when I'm on the balcony taking pictures.

I've made two other versions of this skirt (here and here), so it was pretty easy sailing.

Gorgeous colour - looks great with your white tee for a simple but stylin' summer outfit

Very cute, and that's one off your list! Great job!

I love this skirt and the fabric is TDF (I may have to sneak off to Fabricland to see if I can score some)!! It is perfect on you.

And Biscuit is a cutie as usual.

Well - you have been busy, even with Biscuit's "help". I love the plaid skirt and I loved LV's fall show - I'm thinking of a plaid skirt like that, too.
