here. Also check out Winnie's skirt here. I made my first version just over a year ago in thrifted green cord and I like it but always had it in mind I would like to make it in denim. So those sewing deities aligned when I went to visit a scrapstore. Imagine my glee when I found they sell end of roll fabrics. I bought 3.75 metres of denim for £9. It was literally the end of the roll. Tee hee. Sadly the people I was with had no idea of the price of denim fabric, but I hope you can be happy with me!
When cutting out, I added a couple of inches in length as this skirt sews up short and there is only so much middle aged leg I am willing to flash.
The pattern calls for a lot of binding of seams. I used gingham binding that the lovely Jessica sent me in a parcel. I love the simplicity of this skirt, it provides a basic that I can wear with lots of different things and is robust enough for the toils and turmoils of daily life.
I made the pocket inners from some John Kaldor fabric from my mum's house. I only have about a fat quarter of this so I am using it for linings and facings.
