Den Haag, Nether...
After making my trousers, I had a bit of fabric left, JUST big enough to make a skirt. I made this jeans pencil skirt using my skirt block (to my own measurements). It fits at the natural waist, has a fly front, jeans style front pockets, a curved back yoke, slit ( so I can walk in it ;) and my first ever bound pockets at the back. I took a lot of care finishing all seam allowances with either flat felted seams our biais binding, like I did on my jeans.
denim, topstitching thread
I used burdastyle’s instructions for the Ruby shorts as a guideline when making the bound pockets, although I changed it, going for single binding
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
