Hello, dear reader!
The first finished project I’d like to share with you on here is my new Moss Mini skirt. Truly, I’ve been shopping around for the perfect denim skirt for what seems like ever – something very simple in a moderate length and with a comfortable fit. But I’ve never found the right one (at least within my price range). So I was so delighted when I spotted Grainline’s latest pattern release. It’s just what I’ve been looking for – a great wardrobe staple! And it certainly pairs so well with so many things in my wardrobe.
PATTERN: Moss Mini Skirt by Grainline
FABRICS: Reversible denim (dark blue on one side and burgundy red on the other), Liberty “Darcie” print tana lawn as pocket lining
MODIFICATIONS: I lengthened the skirt by 6cm and added belt loops (for slim leather belts)
THOUGHTS: First of all, the fit of the skirt is amazing! We all know that Grainline’s patterns are incredibly well designed. It sits just perfectly below the waist, neither too low nor too high. Oh, and I can’t keep my hands out of the pockets! This was the first time I inserted a fly, but the step-by-step instructions were very easy to follow. The only thing I had slight troubles with was attaching the waistband to the skirt, but I believe I made a minor mistake while cutting the fabric. All in all, it’s a great pattern!
I already have beautiful burgundy red corduroy set aside for another one. And I’d love to make yet another one in velvet, wool, or even suede… doesn’t that sound dreamy?
Okay, off to the sewing machine!
