Simplicity 2475 Encore

Happy Mother's Day to all moms, moms-to-be, and those who are like-a-mom!

In an earlier review of this skirt pattern, I noted that I would make it again.  I did sew it with the intention of making a coordinating top and skirt outfit for Mother's Day.  Well, here it is in a red linen frabric from JoAnn Fabrics.  I did make a lining for this version.  I am sewing a knit top to coordinate with this skirt, but due to a week beyond my control, was unable to finish it in time for Mother's Day (sigh).  It looks okay with this jacket and camisole, but not exactly what I planned.

Here's the kick pleat.  I used the same fabric for the insert.
