As mentioned earlier, I sewed my first skirt this fall using Simplicity pattern 2451D.

There were a few imperfections around the zipper, with the top of the zipper being misaligned and the bottom stitches not meeting the zipper. That error was not discovered until I wore the skirt to work. Hence the quick red stitches done in the bathroom!

All in all, a wonderful skirt to wear with fall foliage!

This fall I tried a real skirt pattern, I will show you that skirt later.

For now, check out a modified version of the skirt, pleated in the front with plaid pockets. (Sadly this skirt turned out a touch too short to wear outside of the house!)

I am pleasantly pleased with the red lining, which for some reason reminds me of Harry Potter.

No skirt would be complete without a coordinating belt for my boyfriend!

My favorite almost 11 month old and his Halloween bat friends!

Most of my family was born in the month of October.

Here are the cards I made them in celebration:

The Family Guy dog for my Brother-in-Law.

Lemon-Lime Gatorade for my Brother.

The Little Mermaid for my Niece.

Mario for my youngest Nephew.

And something a little different for my Nana.
