Basics in brown... another Mabel skirt

As part of the basics I made a second Mabel skirt.  The same version 3 with kick pleat.  I made it a size down this time and still put some elastic in the waistband.

The fabric used was a leftover piece of brown suede-like double knit.

It is a great pattern given that it takes little fabric, is a quick make and looks smart with some nice features.

Another post soon with the teal cardigan shown above... Ciao!


  1. These look great Sue, very stylish basics!

  2. I like seeing your basic garments, reminds me I need to look at mine as well and this skirt is certainly making me think!

  3. Great basic. It looks very nice!


Love to hear what you think...
