Halloween Skirt Madness Part 2

The madness continues!

I made two more skirts with Simplicity 2449 view B.  One has a purple print background, with pumpkins and ghosts.

The second has a checkerboard-type background of purple and black, with skulls, spiders and spiderwebs. Though the fabric was sold in the Halloween section, it will be suitable for year-round wear. :)

I used another fabric suitable for year-round wear with McCalls 5681. It's purple with owls and spooky branches.

Will the madness ever end?  :)

    1. Thanks! I have made at least a dozen skirts with this pattern. The only change I make is to cut the yoke narrower so it's more like a plain waistband.
