This is quick project I thought up to use the remaining half yard of denim from my Monday trousers. I have added a tutorial on it (because it is just that easy!)
I was inspired by a skirt from Christian Siriano’s (Project Runway!) Sp09 line.(see last photo) Naturally my version is far more casual and wearable. I have added belt loops and am planning on adding “inseam” pockets (although there is only one back seam!)
All you need to know how to do for this is sew a straight line and make box pleats (easy!)
half yard of denim, tailors chalk, ruler, needle and thread, pen and pencil/calculator, closure eg zipper.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
