Review: McCall's 7392 | The 1970's Button Front Corduroy Skirt!

10:30 PM

Mikaela asked me to make her this skirt. This is McCall's 7392.
I'd previously made view A for her summer of 2016. I cut the size 6 in a stretch denim. I topstitched with silver contrasting thread and used silver snaps. She has worn this skirt so much in the last year and a half that she asked me to make her a similar version with a straight edge in corduroy.
This version is done in a 100% cotton goldenrod corduroy. How 1970s does this look? Very! I still used the size 6. This version is basically view C, but in the same length as view A. And I left off the belt loops.
I also used buttons and matching thread for topstitching.
I made a slight 3/4" full butt adjustment. Last year when I made a muslin of this skirt, it was hiking up a bit in the back. And that small alteration fixed that. 
This is such a perfect wardrobe addition for fall and she loves it already.

  1. Your daughter is a beauty and the skirt is so cute and it is styled just right.

  2. Such a lovely young woman! You must be so proud of her!!!

  3. I love your vintage skirt. You did a great job! I really like corduroy and have a few nice fall/winter pieces in my stash. I recently have been looking for ways to use it. It really is too warm for a top, which makes this skirt a perfect choice. I also found a vest pattern that I think I am going to try in corduroy, Vogue 9273, thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Love this little skirt on her! She looks gorgeous like her mama.

  5. What a nice skirt on a beautiful young lady! I have always loved corduroy and that style of skirt.

  6. I am going to repeat a number of comments: Your daughter is lovely, on her way to being a beauty. Those pockets sure are 70's. I loved them and they are so fun to sew up.
    The skirt is a stunner and Mikaela has styled it well.
