Denim skirt finished

Today I finished the denim skirt. I'm very happy with how it turned out. I didn't have to alter anything to the pattern. I used this pattern before and I can't for the life of me remember if I altered the pattern then. But today when I had my first fitting, it was ok right away, so maybe I did alter it after all. Here it is before I hemmed it. (I don't have a picture of the finished skirt because the daylight was fading fast as I took this picture. I'll show a picture of me wearing it tomorrow).













I'm glad the fabric has a bit stretch or else I wouldn't be able to put it on. But once I have it on it fits perfectly. I kept it long so it will look nice with boots as well as with ankle-boots.
And as we all like a bit of detail, here's a picture of the topstitching.














Now I can think about my next project. I'm not sure yet. It's probably going to be a blouse. But if I want to start on it tomorrow I will have to wash and dry the fabric tonight. So I will have to make a choice fast and start washing.

Hallo Lilian, leuk om nog Nederlandse blogger te vinden die in het Engels schrijft.
Je rok ziet er goed uit, mooi doorgestikt.

That's a really nice denim skirt. I love your topstitching - it looks beautifully done. By the way I also very much like your purchases in Antwerp - looks like you had a good time.

Hello! Thank you so much for the welcome. I am really looking forward to blogging and sewing. I am quickly finding out that I have so much to learn. If I only would have paid attention when my grandma wanted to teach me to sew! You make a good point, I have got to remember to have FUN. Having fun will make the learning process much more enjoyable.

I hope you are having a good day!
