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.
