Denim Maxi Skirt - Simplicity 3796

Here's my latest project:



I used this pattern. 



I really like this pattern.  It has a good shape, that fits me well and the pockets are nice.

 
I cut a size 18, but ended up taking more than 1/2" off each side.  The waist was still too big in the back, so I added back waist darts. My skirt is 37" long.  I used a double needle and white thread to topstitch all the seams.


The fabric is a light-medium weight denim I got at Joann's  last year.  It took 2 yards for this skirt.



I wanted a basic denim skirt and I'm happy with how it turned out.

  2. Judith is right - and this looks like a nice weight denim for this skirt. I like the longer length as well - looks very smart.
