This is another pattern that has been extensively reviewed at Pattern Review for both the top and the skirt and I have fallen in love with the simplicity of the skirt with its interesting pockets.
I have used a chocolate brown denim that I purchased from Kerryn’s Fabric World in March 2012 and made the following changes to the pattern:
- added 15 cm (6″) to the length as this skirt is very short
- checked that the hip/waist shape was the same as my self drafted skirt
- since this was stretch denim, I took 0.5cm (1/8″) extra in at the waist.
|Lining and twill tape waistband.|
|Invisible zip and seam matching|
|Quilting cotton for the pocket lining.|
The pockets are wonderful, they don’t gape and it is so easy to slide your hands into them.
