A Couple Winter pieces

The skirt is New Look 6569, which is now a TnT pattern for me.  I love that the pleats are only in the center, to give fullness without adding bulk to the hips.  This one is my fourth skirt from the pattern and works just as well in a cotton corduroy as a light weight calico.  The top is KwikSew 3263 in a cotton interlock.  The finished measurements had several inches of negative ease, so I added an inch to the side seams.  I ended up trimming that off and it still could use some trimming under the arm.  I really like this pattern for a basic tee with a twist.  The only thing I don’t like about this pattern is that the neckline is not as wide as the pattern illustration.  I will probably make this again, though.

How cute is this little bow?!?!  My favorite thing about this pattern!

    Oh I absolutely have to make this up! I have the pattern but the front sketch made me think the neckline was lower. I hate plunging necklines with long sleeves. If I want my arms warm, I want my chest warm!
