Camel Skirt

Time for another installment for Wardrobe Basic Sewalong, the camel skirt, what a great basic, perfect color for any season.  As always let's start with some inspiration.

Or check out a great assortment at Polyvore

Is your head buzzing with ideas?  Mine is.  In fact, I have purchased 2 pieces of camel fabric for this SAL. One is a camel corduroy and one is a lightweight suiting.

Now patterns (just a few, there are so many skirt patterns out there)

Now fabric.........just looking at camel colored options and just a few options

So what are your plans? 
I think I am going to make one skirt from New Look 6079 from the corduroy and  Amazing Fit Simplicity pattern for the suiting.


  1. I just finished a Burda pencil skirt out of some pretty camel wool. It has a yoke and little slot pockets in it. The pattern is for a CF zip, but I changed it to be buttoned down the front. I'm loving the inverted pleats on the New Look skirt!

  2. I love that Samantha skirt pattern. Hmmm...may have to get that one. Looking forward to seeing what you decide on.

  3. Samantha pattern is very cute, but doggone it...once again, Sylearc!

  4. I like to wear skirt so much. I like all type of skirt but specially I like Samantha skirt. Its look very pretty and professional. You have done amazing work.

  5. Wow you shared such nice skirt pattern with us. All pix is too good and nice. I like most of all type of skirt. Its look so beautiful and great.
