I finished my denim skirt yesterday and am thrilled with how it turned out.
I used McCall’s M5430 which claims to be a one hour skirt, though I’d have to say it took me a bit more than an hour. Overall I’d say it was a good pattern especially for a beginner, like myself. My only complaint was that the pattern instructs you to hem it prior to putting the waistband on, and then once I’d tried it on I had to hem it again. I used denim purchased from a fabric shop in Marrickville and top-stitched the pockets and waistband with red thread. The pictures just don’t do it justice, hmm and perhaps I should have ironed it.
