I absolutely adore sweaters and pencil skirts. It’s such a great way to quickly look pulled together and polished.
When I bought this sweater knit fabric from Mood Fabrics.com, I had something else in mind for it. But as it turns out from time to time, an online fabric purchase isn’t exactly what you thought it would be. [Editor’s note: Mood strongly recommends getting a swatch before you make a purchase.] I wanted to use the fabric for an actual sweater. But it felt too heavy for the pullover sweater that I had in mind. Nevertheless, I made it work into some entirely different. This paneled skirt.
I used the sweater knit and black ponte knit from my stash. I still added a zipper, but omitted the vent. Instead of this being a total loss and just another piece of fabric clogging up my stash, I “made it work”. I think it was a great save and cool wardrobe addition for this fall.
