More on my denim skirt…

Hello all, me again.  I’ve had a couple of “distractions” over the last week therefore I haven’t quite finished my denim skirt, but I thought I would show you what I have accomplished so far – and perhaps this week you might even get a laugh out of it!

I started my denim skirt by cutting out a Sewaholic Hollyburn skirt pattern here and making my back pockets, and doing my topstitching and flat felled seams here.

Now it is time to sew my jeans fly front.  My one side is interfaced, double fold bias tape is sewn on the rough edge and the piece is sewn on to my left side front (if I am looking at the skirt).  The interfacing will never show as this piece is folded over to the inside.

Coming along nicely! Sort of…

There has been a lot of sitting around this weekend, watching movies and the drizzling rain, and snacking.  Not really heavy rain, but that rain that makes you think “Do I need an umbrella or not?”  I have been staring at my sewing projects too, perhaps waiting for them to magically put themselves together.  That hasn’t happened yet.   Let me tell you what I have accomplished this last week, on what I am now calling my “Two Jeans Project”, it all started with a Craftsy course instructed by Angela Wolf and Sandra Betzina’s Craftsy course and Vogue pattern V2948 which I posted about first here and here.

The next steps I had to work on were the fly fronts.  I prepared the single layer fly pieces and the double layer fly pieces for both my jeans.  The zipper gets sewn on to the pants opening at the same time as the double fly piece.

Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!!
