This morning I cut out the denim skirts for A. Denim certainly has gotten expensive, at least at JoAnn. Luckily, I had a 40%off coupon. I was disappointed in the fabric, though, when I started cutting out the skirts. The grain was totally crooked, so I just did the best I could by trying to pull the fabric to straighten the grain and then putting the grain marker on the pattern on the straight of grain. I left the crosswise grain to its own devices. The skirt has lots of seaming so I am hoping that will hold everything in line.
Here’s the pattern:
We are using View E which does not have the ruffle.
The lining for the yokes will be some navy broadcloth. These skirts should be very useful since denim goes with everything. To make them more versatile, the topstitching will be navy instead of the usual white or gold.
I still have lots of the denim left, so I may make another skirt or make some summer shorts for myself.
