Fun with stripes!

Am I the only one who finds the most fabulous pinstriped fabrics and can't find the perfect pattern for them? I am just attracted to navy pinstripe, I can't explain it! I finally found a perfect pattern. This is Vogue 1092, and the front takes 13 pattern pieces, but the results are stunning.

This time I even took the time to slip in a secret pocket at the waistband. I am so tired of having to haul my purse everywhere.

The back looks a little bit wonky, but I checked out the rest of the reviews (2!) and the others seem to show the same thing so I dont' feel so bad.
I concentrated on matching the stripes, and forgot that I was cutting on the bias.
Oh well, like Dr. Hank used to say, "If you hear a gasp from the audience you will know what the problem is." He was the theater head when I was in charge of costuming in college and didn't like to hear the drama queens complain. I miss Dr. Hank.


  1. Wow, that really is beautiful. I also tend to buy pintstripss then fail to find quite the right pattern. I might have to seek this one out though. Its a lovely use of the fabric.

  2. That looks fantastic. I love the use of the stripes to emphasize the piecing. Gorgeous skirt!

  3. Your stripes look really great, usign this pattern. Stripes are fun!

  4. This skirt is gorgeous! That's so nice with the stripes.
