Moss skirt

After seeing so many lovely Moss mini’s on the interwebs, it was only a matter of time until I jumped on the band wagon and made one myself. My only regret with this pattern… is that I didn’t make it earlier!

I’ve been in desperate need of a simple denim skirt all summer and have scraped by (fashionably speaking) without one all-summer-long! Shock! Horror!

Needless to say, I’m extremely happy with my skirt and the pattern. I made a size 4 and only removed about 1/4 inch from each side and added 3 inches to the hem to get this good fit. I also top stitched the seams to fein flat felled seams 🙂

To make this skirt an even more satisfying project, I managed to squeeze this skirt out of an ancient odd-shaped remnant of thick, sturdy denim that has been sitting in my stash since, well, who knows? Seriously, I think it was well less that 1m in total and looked like the letter “H”.

*happy dance*

Pattern: Grainline Moss Mini = $8.50
Fabric: Ancient denim remant approx $5
Zipper: Metal jeans zip = $3?
Thread: black from stash.

Total: $16.50
