Make The Look
Anthro's Wicopy Skirt
After looking through some of the new offerings from Anthro, I chose the Wicopy skirt for this week's make the look. Although this is a simple skirt, I think it could be worn with a lot of different tops/sweaters/jackets for fall, and with or without boots, and with or without tights. There's lots of options here.
To make a similar, inspired-by skirt, the closest pattern I've found is Simplicity 2512. There are some differences, the first being that there are no pleats at the waist - which may be a good thing if you don't want all that thickness around your middle. The original skirt also has a paper bag style waist and the pattern doesn't. The paper bag style isn't really slimming or versatile, either, so I actually like the pattern better in that regard.
For fabrics, you could chose any wool plaid or boucle and actually splurge on some nice wool plaid and still make this skirt for much, much cheaper than the retail price. This wool from Gorgeous Fabrics is only $14.00 a yard, and a great plaid for fall:
This tweedy wool from Emma One Sock is pretty affordable, too and would work well with this fall's palette of colors:

Parting Shot: Approved! The new music bag gets approval from Wellie. Glad my work is still up to his standards. LOL.
