The skirt is nearly done!

In my usual fashion of making the most simple garments a little less simple, I decided to add the patch pockets to the back of the skirt and quite a bit of top-stitching too!


Despite that, all I have to do is finish the waistband and stitch the hem.


The hem will be top-stitched, but the waistband will be hand-sewn on the inside to allow for easy alteration later should I need it.

And best of all…I really love this skirt. Β It comes together really nicely and is slightly pegged so is a super flattering shape.

So tomorrow, I’ve a little hand-sewing, a little top-stitching on the hem and I can crack on with the top!Β Woot!Β I always did work best with a deadline…even if it is a self-imposed one!

    Gasp! What is it about contrast topstitching that gets us all hot and bothered?? I don’t know a single sewist for whom this isn’t the case. πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see more!!

    I’m just going to repeat what everyone wrote before me – you’ve done the most awesome job with your topstitching! (newbie question – what kind of thread did you use for it?). I’m very interested to see how the patch pockets look too.

  8. Wow! You are super quick .. it has taken me a week not to sew the skirt part of a dress I’m making my daughter lol! Love the top stitching by the way πŸ™‚

    Ooh, that’s looking lovely! I can’t resist adding topstitching to things sometimes, particularly if I’m working with denim. I went mad with it on some denim capris I made recently. Look forward to seeing the finished skirt!

  14. Beautiful stitching – I need to stop being afraid of Denim!
