Do you ever come across a pattern that you must try, purchase it, and then don't use it? Welp, that was me. Why? Not sure....still kicking myself for waiting so long.
This pattern is rated as challenging by StyleArc and is a basic jean skirt with classic styling.
If you've put together a jean skirt or a pair of jeans/pants with a real fly front, you'll find the directions really good.
If you've never done that type of a garment before, then use some directions that have extended visual and written directions.
Just to give you an idea of how many flys I've done....it's more than 10, which isn't a huge amount, but I do feel confident putting them in.
Sorry for the wrinkles...I wore it to work today. Super comfortable. Just the right amount of ease to be comfortable and not loose or sloppy looking.
I made this as is....no alterations at all, however looking at the photos I think I will make my usual swayback adjustment of a 1/2".
Just for a reference, I am 5'7" and the skirt is a great length. I put in an inch and a half hem and it hits me a few inches above the knees.
The rendition show the finished skirt a bit longer, but I like this length on me.
I used a denim I purchased on Amazon and it is called Cone Denim. I found it as a kit on the sewing blog, Closet Case Files. I wanted to try the denim without a big commitment and this piece from Amazon was the perfect size and weight for this skirt.
The topstitching thread came from Wawak and is 'Levi gold'. It worked beautifully.
I love my new skirt and can see this becoming a TNT.
Thanks for reading!
