Skirts are really fast to sew. This denim skirt with six gores was easy to cut out and easy to sew. I’ve already made this pattern for A one or two times, so the fit issues have been worked out, and it is now a TNT pattern for her. There were 2 1/2 yards of the denim, and it yielded two of these Simplicity 2655 skirts and one A-line skirt.
The denim is very dark and is hard to photograph but here’s an early morning view of the finished skirt:
This skirt has a side zipper. I usually put a lapped zipper on side seams and a centered zipper on center back seams. Instead of sewing two identical skirts one after the other, I decided to sew the A-line version next. In the photo below, I am pinning on the top facing. This pattern, McCall’s 3341, I have also sewn before. I like the way it has easing stitches between the notches that fit the skirt onto the facing, giving the skirt a nice shape.
In the garden, my zinnias are blooming. Here’s a nice bright one:
