Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

The Mindi Skirt by SA

I made this skirt about a year ago, promptly hung it in my closet and forgot about it!  What?  

Versatile but trendy zip front skirt in 2 lengths
This is a StyleArc pattern and here is the description from their site: This fashionable skirt comes in 2 lengths - mini or knee length. Featuring a shaped waist band and center front open-end zip, along with optional zipped pockets. This is a great skirt to wear with your Ziggi Biker jacket.

I epic-ally sucked at taking photos.  I looked away at the wrong times, I missed smiling, etc.  But, it had been a long day and I decided to live with my goofy photos.  

Can you believe this is the longer version?  I can't imagine how short the 15" skirt would have been on me!

For reference, I am 5'7". 

It's hard to see the details on black, so here is a closer shot.  Those pockets are two pieces so you don't have to make a welt.

Here is a pic of the back and you can see the seaming details.  This is one of those garments that looks good on the inside and out!  I tried uploading a photo of that but it kept coming in upside down.

I really like this skirt.  I used a denim with a slight stretch.  Zippers were from JoAnns.  I am glad I rediscovered this in my closet so I can enjoy wearing it!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I've wanted to make this since it came out and even ordered some nice YKK zippers for one! You're making me want to break the pattern out!

    Love your skirt. Fit is spot on!

  2. I love your skirt! Very on trend with those zippers and such a luscious looking denim. Beautiful!

  3. This is a really cute skirt. I can't believe you forgot about it.
