This is the best fit I’ve ever achieved on a fitted skirt! Look at the back waist! No GAP! There was no after completion shortcut that made it that way. I sewed directly from the pattern. I drafted it from another denim skirt I made. The denim on that one is much lighter and I put in a flimsy waistband, so it rides up when worn with stockings. This one is perfect. The weight of the denim is fantastic. I will guard this pattern with my life, lol. My husband asked me if I put the zipper like that on purpose. That’s his husband-y way of saying he’s not a fan of it, lol.
He likes the top though. Bra exposing as it is. I’ve had that black lace forever. I always waffled on what to make with it. I think this was an OK choice after all of that waiting, it could be a bit tighter (and possible a little shorter) though. Other than that I love it. Especially the peek-a-boo back. It’s inspired by a shirt I tried on in F21 (it had raglan sleeves) that I didn’t love. That’s the great thing about sewing. You can make what you want, whatever way you want!
