Pattern Review: 6-Gore Indigo Denim Matte Jersey Skirt

One of the reasons we sew is to have a "one of a kind" garment. But what a compliment when someone mistakes a garment we've made for a designer's garment!  Good job Kasey!



This skirt is from Vogue 7910, view C which is a six-panel, band-less skirt with angled front pockets and an off-center back zip.

This skirt is easy to fit as the six seams allow you to shape the waistline very closely to your own. It can be made very quickly with topstitching to fell the seam allowances, or you can underline it and hand-fell the seams for a very clean look on the outside.



I used a denim-look rayon jersey from Sew Much Fabric, which comes in indigo (Sold Out) and black. The fabric washed very well and sewed easily. Initially when I basted the skirt together I found the jersey was a bit too swishy on its own, so I underlined it with a soft fusible hymo which gave it the perfect weight.


 I topstitched with a deep golden thread which compliments the deep indigo perfectly.

At the airport last month my skirt was mistaken for a designer piece – quite the compliment for my quick and easy skirt!
