Hi

I put this together over the course of a week of evenings, from an oddment of denim I bought for £2. I based it on a jeans skirt I already had, but didn't think I could cope with a real fly fastening yet so this has a mock fly and actually fastens with a zip at the side.

I really wish I had put some darts at the back, as you can see the waist band gapes a little, but as I'm only to wear it with a top which comes down belowthe top.

Any other suggestions?  It's kinda twisted by design but then so am I!

I think this is great! I really like the contrasting stitching, nice touch Smiley
As for suggestions... maybe you could fray the bottom edge of the skirt a little bit...
otherwise awesome Smiley

Thanks Photo!

Yeah, I want it more frayed. I've been gradually pulling bits off when I'm sitiing around in it but haven't got round to the hem yet!
