Groovy Godets Recycled Denim Jean Skirt Groovy Godets Skirt

Pattern Description:

This skirt is designed with a pleasing play of rugged denim and essentially feminine elements. The swingy fabrics, softly tied belt and jaunty kick of the godet skirt conceal its tough beginnings as a sturdy denim garment. Easily adapted to any size figure (including children), you need only begin with any denim skirt, shorts or jeans that fits you at the waist and upper hip. May be constructed in any length you desire following the directions provided. Experiment with a variety of quirky fabrics for belt and godets such as polyesters with a woven sparkle, decorator fabrics, or vintage linens.
