My Cords

Have been sewing with corduroy lately.  Love the stuff.  But haven't caught up with showing myself wearing them all.  Toward that end...

here's my new skirt with big pockets!

I also have on the new corduroy top I recently made.  See more views after the break...




I mean really big pockets, that zip.

and a look down at my made-from-scratch sox and re-found docs

To see the things up close and find out more about them, either click on the bold typed words, or for the cords, click on my Clothes for Fall page.

I'm running on over to join the Visibles at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style and then join the crowd at Monday MingleCome on by for a look-see.

  2. Pat, now you clearly get the critical role pockets play in the very best garments.

  3. Oh wow! I knew that skirt would be awesome on and it totally is. I love the shape and the mega-huge pockets. I really enjoy sewing on corduroy - I had to hem both of my corduroy pants and it sews really easy.

  4. I love corduroy too - great shirt. And you do have pockets that would hold several good-sized cats : > Thanks for sharing your creativity with Visible Monday.

  5. Oh, fantastic! I too am so happy to see it on - perfect panniers for cats, and also going to market for produce!

  6. Oh, corduroy. I do so love it and pockets too? Wonderful. The color of your stockings, so rich. A wonderful counterpart to the corduroy.

  7. Now when someone asks if you have 'deep pockets' you won't be able to deny it!! So cute.

  8. Who needs to carry a bag with those spectacular zipped pockets. You may need to patent these; I think you're on to something (again). The pink made from scratch socks are such a great combo with the shoes. You're the only person I know who makes socks. Amazing!

    1. I've always loved skirts and dresses with pockets, but this - this is the cat's pajamas. And socks are easy to make if you have the right fabric. I found out it has to stretch both ways!

  9. Now I want to make my version of that skirt too - yours is too cute! Unfortunately there's a number of things in the queue already that demand to get done first. Isn't that always the way? I do love me some corduroy too but I haven't seen any nice stuff recently. Will have to keep an eye out. You are so inspirational!

    1. I stumbled upon great quality corduroy at Vogue Fabric here on sale for only $1.99/yard! Thus the series of garments lately. Watch out for the sizing on this pattern, both pants and skirt. I ended up going about 4 sizes smaller than the pattern indicated.

  10. Made from scratch socks? I've never heard of such a thing. I've heard of scratchy socks, in fact, I've even worn scratchy socks but never knew they could be made from scratch. ;)

    I love those great big pockets!

    1. Just think of the designs you could make from diy socks, Joni!

  11. Loving Patti's suggestion of cat-carrying pockets, they look wonderful,if you're going to have pockets make 'em as visible as possible.
    Local joke, never wear cord in the rain. Why? You cor-dry-it. (Don't know if it works in an anything other than a Black Country accent) xxx

    1. Yes, it's the perfect 'going to the vet' skirt if you wear some thick denim leggings or such under it. I think your right about the accent...

  14. If I could choose a super-power it would be to fashion my own garments. Just so great. Really.

    There are not enough pockets in the world. Not nearly enough ... thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Hey Jan, it doesn't take super-power, just playing around, and time, and no problem with failure.

  15. You always twist something ordinary into something extraordinary, big pockets case in point, and that hemline. Oooo - loving that. Your pockets could hold a whole box of tissue. I'm a bit late here, but I'm glad I made it. You are ALWAYS inspiring.
