It has been years since I used a skirt. Not that I don’t like them, but it’s really hard to find one that fits me nicely, so I gave up. Until now that is!
Today Adrianna from Hey June Handmade released her new pattern, the Sandbridge skirt, a casual skirt available in two lengths, five pockets, zipper fly and belt loops. As you see, a real skirt!
The skirt is available from sizes 2 to 22 and I’ve made a size 2, based on my natural waist and hips measurements, the ones that are most important in this pattern.
I opted for view A because I am not tall, so I knew it wouldn’t be as short as it is intended to and I will wear it during the holidays, which is just perfect.
The instructions, as usual, are so clear and helpful. This was the first time I ever installed a zipper fly and I didn’t felt difficulties. If you feel put aside from making the skirt for being difficult, don’t. Not only the instructions are very helpful but there is also a sew along starting next week.
I absolutely love the fit of this skirt! The back yoke makes the skirt fit nicely and this one It fits me like any other store bought did.
The hem is meant to be raw but in case you prefer a hem, just need to add the correspondent length. I chose it raw and just add two parallel lines of stitches to keep it from fraying too much.
The fabric is a light denim that I bought long ago and already used before. The only thing missing are the rivets, that I found hard to find.
I know I said it before, but I am really pleased with how it turned out. It is a great feeling to challenge myself and achieve something that always put me way.
Have a wonderful summer. 😊
