I had to make minimal alterations to this skirt…just added a little to the waist and a couple of inches to the length, and away I went.
The fabric is from my stash. I bought it from The Cloth House about 4 years ago. Hazarding a guess I’d say it’s an 11oz denim. I wish I’d bought more of it as it’s just lovely. Both to sew and to wear. After all the tricky fabrics I’ve been sewing of late, this was an absolute treat.
I love the details of this skirt:
Whilst this looks like a fairly complex pattern, it’s actually really quite straightforward to make. If you take your time. But I’ve already covered that topic this week!
I know both the skirt and the new top are a little snug…but I’m back on a healthy eating kick and the weight is slowly coming off again, so this was a deliberate decision to ensure that I can wear these for quite some time to come, even as I get slimmer.
So, all that’s left to say is that I’m thrilled with this outfit and really enjoyed wearing it today. It seems all that slow sewing really paid off.
