100% Cotton Denim
Notions: I used a 9″ YKK invisible zipper for the side zipper, fusible knit interfacing for the facings, 1/4″ double fold bias tape to finish the facing edges and 1/4″twill tape to prevent the waist from stretching with wear.
Alterations: There were two alterations-the waist was taken in 1.5″ and the side seams were sewn at 3/8″ instead of 5/8″.
Construction Details: I omitted the belt carriers for my skirt, but may add them later. All fabric edges were finished by a 3 thread serger except for the waist. The facings were 100% cotton shirting that coordinated with the fabric. They were fused with the knit interfacing and also bound with the double fold bias tape.
I plan to wear the skirt with knit tops and coordinating blouses both tucked in and outside the skirt. If I sew the skirt again, I will sew all the seams with a 3/8″ seam to allow a little more wearing ease-unless I manage to lose that 5 pounds :).
