My denim has a bit of stretch to it and the topstitching is a silver-grey rayon thread just because I happened to have it on hand and it stood out well against the denim, I hope it will be strong enough.
Other than switching threads on my sewing machine this is like most pencil skirts, a simple sew.
I finished the inside of the waistband and also the pocket linings with a printed cotton fabric to reduce bulk in those areas.
I think the fabric will benefit from a few more washes to soften it up a bit, it's a bit stiff and prone to wrinkling at the moment. Nevertheless I think this is really going to fill a hole in my wardrobe, I can just pull out this neutral skirt and pretty much any top and be ready to go.
|Look, real pockets, albeit rather useless ones.|
The top in these pictures (not that you can see it) is the popular gathered raglan sleeve t shirt from 02/2013 more to come on that next.
