Bias Cut Denim Skirt

Added Jun 2, 2011

This bias cut denim skirt gets a lot of wear because it’s a perfect partner for my work wardrobe – casual but with a twist. The pattern is self drafted based on my A-skirt sloper that I use for all my skirts. The back looks a bit weird in the pictures because my derrire is a bit curvier than the one of my dress form:-)
Just a note on sewing denim on the bias: I reinforced the center seams with fusible stay tape to avoid bubbling after topstitching. And I fully lined the skirt, cutting the lining on the straight grain. With these measures, the skirt has kept it’s shape pretty well.

    Really good job. I’d never thought of cutting denim on the bias for a project. I can quite believe how this lovely skirt has become a wardrobe staple!
