Yes, I’m posting another photo of my butt on the interwebs. Confident or clueless?
Anywho, may I present Vogue 7910, view B with a few mods. I’ve been wanting a denim skirt and just couldn’t find one I liked. I thought I could certainly make one so when I saw some lightweight “denim” (most likely a cotton/rayon blend) at Fabrix, I bought. I had Vogue 7910 in the pattern stash already, so it was an easy decision to put the denim with the A-line skirt.
I chose view B, which has arcs at the side seams giving my skirt some nice drape. The topstitching is done with Gutermann Jeans thread which is VERY thick, which gives my skirt just the look I wanted. Tip: play with your tension when using the thick jeans thread to achieve lovely seams.
Other mods include shortening the skirt 4 inches and changing the waistband to a waist facing. Drafting a waist facing pattern once you’ve fitted your skirt is a breeze. I also fused 3/4″ wide strips of interfacing where the zipper is placed so my fabric is good and stable, no pooching or puckering when adding the zipper.
I’m happy with my new skirt and please be sure I won’t be wearing a denim suit since I don’t own a jeans jacket. Other faux pas may occur, but not the dreaded denim suit!
