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!


  1. Looks fab Carmel! Great colour. I can't wait to get mine made.

  2. Come on... show us ya yoke!!!!

    Great to see that you got it done - and that you like the zip tricks!

  3. Looks fantastic! Its a great pattern.

  4. Oh Nikki has great style, i love the choice of fabric, colour & coordinates you're rocking here, looks gorgeous. I bet it is super comfortable too, love Posie

  5. Woo Hoo! You're looking GORGEOUS Carmel. Great skirt. Fantastic. What an awesome cut and the stretchy denim is an inspired choice. Brilliant!!!

  6. I've made a Nikki skirt before too - and with the master herself trying not to giggle at my luddite sewing talents. But isn't it loverly the way the skirt SITS?! So that's what the yoke is for...
