My Red Nikki Skirt
I finished my skirt by hemming it this morning. The pattern is Nicole Mallalieu Design's A-Line Skirt. I used some red hatched-denim that mum gave to me that she got for $2 a metre. I love that it has a little bit of give because it is denim, but doesn't look like boring old denim - and way more comfortable than jeans.
I also love the yoke on the skirt - no more facings rolling out the top of my skirt. There (as usual) were heaps of little tips and tricks to get a really professional finish in the easiest possible way. The best part though, was the instructions for inserting the invisible zip. There is no need to be afraid of zips - not even the invisible ones!
