Showcasing The Plaid Raised Waist Skirt With a Back Flounce

Back in November I posted this skirt as part of a Monday Morning Inspiration post on plaid fabrics. So many of you loved the skirt, so I did a post on how to draft the skirt. You can find that post HERE, just in case you missed it. It really is a very pretty skirt.
Ruth of https://corecouture.wordpress.com made a lovely version, but she decided to add the flounce to center back. You can find her post on the skirt HERE.
The lovely Cennetta of http://themahoganystylist.blogspot.com loved the plaid and she always enjoys trying out a new drafting project, so she decided to give it a go. She kept both of the flounces, but dropped the raised waist. You can find her post HERE.
Check out how cute her skirt is!
 I love the shorter version and I think she looks absolutely adorable in the skirt.
 Hmmm, I think I need to get mine finished!!!!
Thanks to Ruth and Cennetta for giving the skirt a try. I think you both look amazing in your versions.
If by chance you give this skirt or any other drafting project I've posted a try, please shoot me an email and let me know, sewbussted@yahoo.com. I love seeing what you've done and even more, I love to share your work.

  1. Hi there Rhonda,

    Just to let you know, another fabulous blogger, Ann Vidovic also did it and her skirt turned out beautifully too. I want to give it a go just as soon as I find some fabric that catches my eye. See how your inspiration flourishes around the globe!!

  2. Those are both all so cute. You are inspiring me once again, Rhonda!

  3. I love these skirts. So inspiring!

  4. These skirts are gorgeous and so wearable, very nicely done.

  5. Thanks, Rhonda, for inspiring us. It's a great skirt and I will make it for my DD too.
