I love my new skirt! I have been wanting a simple denim skirt for a while and finally ordered some denim from and made this one up. It was a lot of fun to work on this skirt - I inserted my first zipper in a garment! Came out pretty good too :) The side seams were serged and I serged the edges of the back seam, which is where the zipper went in. I used some cotton fabric I had on hand for the facing and serged the edge of that as well. I have had this pattern in my stash for probably 9 years. I think it was one of my first pattern purchases! It was so comfortable to wear, I know I'll get a ton of use out of this one!
