I'm all about the basics right now. I just went back to work after a whirlwind summer. I have been sewing, but let's be honest when I don't work I have no need to put on make up, brush my hair...shower... Yes, I go into feral teacher mode. But my hair is cut, my shoes are back on, overall I am falling into place visually. It is time to catch up on blog posts.
So I have worn this skirt at least once a week since I made it. It is a light weight stretch denim Hummingbird. It is so comfortable and looks like a pencil skirt when paired with a blouse or just a dang cute skirt when paired with a T-shirt.
I found a gold button in my stash that I loved for this skirt. Oh yeah, I make button holes now. I love that new machine! It even sewed the button on for me. LOVE, guys. I did a lapped zipper as that is my preferred zipper.
I can't get enough of these pockets. They are absolutely brilliant. They lay flat and don't add bulk even when they are full of chap-sticks and cell phones.
I great basic. I did add a couple inches to the length as I wanted it to be work appropriate. Also I had to take in the sides a bit due to the stretch in the denim, but this is a TNT pattern for me. I totally recommend it!
