Houndstooth Classic Fall/ Winter Skirt DIY (Beginner Sewing)


Baby, it is cold outside and I don’t have very many work clothes that are great for every day.

The goal is to feel chic, cozy and professional for my internship. One item that comes to mind is a classic houndstooth wool pencil skirt. Looking online, I found White House Black Market has a version of this that has sold out! This is my new favorite item and I have already worn and styled this beauty 3x in one week! I’m obsessed.

It feels like butter against my legs, and I feel like stylish Queen wearing this creation with black booties and a long sleeve.

I found my fabric at the mighty Joann Fabrics and Crafts store. It only took 20 minutes to make. I used 1 yard and had enough fabric left over to make a headband, key fob and perhaps an infinity scarf (haven’t actually completed that yet).

If you make this skirt please let me know how you style it. More ideas are welcome.
