The Skirt

The skirt in my opinion is an entry level item to garment sewing.  I sewed quite a number of them in the early days.  It's pretty straight forward and the only 'difficult' component is applying the zip closure.  As always my preferred zip closure is the invisible zip.  The more you practice sewing invisible zips, the more you'll discover that it is easier to apply when compared to a centred or a lapped zipper.

Then there are other components that you might look into for eg. types of  pockets and lining.  There are no pockets for this skirt but it's fully lined.  It's a simple enough skirt with hand stitched hems and facing for a touch of couture.  You see, it's all in the details.

This skirt pattern was rubbed-off from an existing denim skirt.  Changes were made to the paper pattern accordingly as per request and then the subsequent process of cutting and sewing.
