Dude, I LOVE this skirt. I bought some cotton corduroy for a preppy blazer, and randomly tried out this skirt with the surplus yard or so. Of course, the blazer was a total dud, while this little number is a surprise winner!
I think the wonders of Grainline's Moss skirt have been sung a gazillian times already: its flattering fit, its wonderful fly zip instructions..I could go on, but will keep it short. The weight of this corduroy is perfect for Moss, and the fiery red goes with much more than I would have thought. I did some extra flat felling and top stitching around yoke and pockets, just because I could!
Here's a scary monster size shot of the front to show a truer colour, and better impression of the wide whaled cord. It's a bargain from Fabric Mart, all sold out in this colour unfortunately, but still available in amazing hunter green here....hard to resist. I opted for a skirt hook instead of a button: the thickness of the waistband layers scared my buttonhole foot into submission.
