This skirt was inspired by one I saw in a store, but I like mine way better!

I used some tweed-look non-stretch denim I got for only $2.99/m. It has black piping and a bit of gathering under the waistband, which is lined in brown and aqua polka dot cotton.









I have a bunch more of the denim, I might make a few more of these Smiley

That's really nice, I like the way it sits. Did you put in a zip?

I've been trying to make a shirt like this for ages and I keep screwing it up, so I'm very impressed with your results.

It is very flattering.  I would never have guessed the fabric is denim.

Oops! I forgot to mention that it zips up the left side. And thank you!

That really is a beautiful skirt!
I too never would have guessed it was denim...
I've been avoiding zippers, but this might just inspire me to reunite with one...

Great job!
