So who knew I would actually have the very fabric recommended for the skirt in my stash? I picked up two pieces of moleskin at Hancock's recently. Both pieces are intended to match a knit print for a top I'm making. I've had Vogue 8750 for a while now and thought it would perfect for the skirt. As it happens, moleskin is the first recommended fabric. I'm excited about the project; however, I'm not a fan of grosgrain ribbon instead of waistband facings. I'm going to try it anyway.... I spent this evening cutting it out--I'll work on finishing it tomorrow.
I'm having sew much fun on these jeans they might be my new favorite garment to sew! They have come together well. I'm in the process of fitting and preparing to attach the waistband. I've been digitally documenting every detail. I love the topstitching details. I chose a funky twill for the pocket lining. Even the zipper details came together nicely.... More pics later showcasing the hem and once the fit is finalized
