Simplicity 2154 - "Changing Leaves" Autumn Pencil Skirt

Several posts ago, I mentioned my fall sewing to-do list - which has all but gone out the window - which included wool variations of Simplicity 2154 (undetermined at the time). However, after the success and ease of my last corduroy skirt, I've decided it would be a good idea to use pinwale corduroy as a muslin/toile for all of my new skirt patterns. This way, I can whip it up quickly and tweak the fit easily while still having a perfectly wearable, unlined skirt. So, when I saw this pretty autumn red in Joann's, I thought it would be a good match.

11l11l11 - Did You Wear the Wale?

Yesterday, was 11l11l11, the "day which most resembles corduroy." I first heard about this only a week or so ago via @CottonFashion 's retweet of a @CorduroyClub post. Coincidentally, I happened to finish my red corduroy pencil skirt (Simplicity 2154) this week so, I thought it would be fun to participate in the wale festivities by wearing it when we went out Friday.
