How’s that for a title? πŸ˜‰ I made this skirt to include in my “How To Sew Denim” eBook! It’s now available on freshmodesty.com. The eBook is a step-by-step fully-pictured tutorial on how to sew one for yourself.

I drafted the wide waistband, copied the fly from a pair of jeans, learned how to do buttonholes, and  lined the pockets with fun striped fabric-  all firsts! So thankful it all worked out. πŸ™‚

 Stripes make me happy. πŸ˜€

The fabric is light weight (about 6.5oz, to be specific)  so it drapes nicely.

 The buttons (they have little eagles on them) were from my great-grandmother’s stash.

 You know those little useless pockets inside the other pockets of jeans? Well, I varied that idea and made a diagonal pocket. πŸ˜€
