I made this skirt a couple of years ago in the long version with a straight waistband, in a rust pinstripe velveteen sort of fabric. This weekend I decided to make it again, but change it up with the shorter hem length, curved waistband, and denim fabric. It was my first time using sew-in interfacing, and I don’t want to go back to fusible! Again, I had to double the darts on the front and back, then use a smaller size for the waste – hips ;) A little trickier with the curved band, and it’s not perfectly snug, but I still like it.
