Checks - McCall 9356 view C

This piece has also been in my stash for a while so I made this using McCalls 9356 view C and the walking foot on my Janome.

I enjoyed using the walking foot because the lines matched up so nicely.
Here's the side view so you can see how the checks match. What I didn't have was a beige top to match so I've used black and white to get the right balance for my height.
I was able to wear a jacket that I made years ago and a red scarf to get me from home to work. You can tell our winter is still a mild experience but it's now getting cooler.

Brilliant pattern matching, the walking foot makes a huge difference. Love the skirt and the way your are styling it.

Great ensemble for work. Not sure I'd describe this winter as mild - I'm freezing!

Again, this skirt came out beautifully and I love the classic tailored styling.
