Woot for another successful sew along! :D

My project for the Fall for Cotton sew along was this great gray corduroy skirt c. 1940. I made it to go with this great rayon printed blouse. Both are made from DuBarry 5909.

I’m very happy with these two separates. I’m sure they’ll get loads of wear.

What a great piece! Looks like a skirt that will get a lot of wear. Actually they both look like great pieces!
