Self-drafted denim A-line skirt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The fit is very good and I like the effect that the different colours of denim create. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I made the pattern using the instructions from Deborah in the Design & Sew an A-line skirt class. The inset pockets that I added aren't included in the class though. I blogged about this project here: http://wp.me/p3RIIN-dL

What you will need

  • Swedish tracing paper to make the pattern. Denim cut from old pairs of jeans
  • some floral cotton and medium weight woven fusible interfacing.

Great job!
Emmely answered:
Thank you! I really like wearing this skirt.
shessassy asked:
What a neat idea! Well done - like that style of pockets, too. :-)
Emmely answered:
Thank you! The pockets look best when you're standing. I've found they gape a bit when I sit down.

Thank you, it's not difficult to make a skirt this way so give it a try!
