I've been wanting a denim skirt for a while now,
but not one of those that you wear with thongs and a mullet!

I have seen plenty of Colette Ginger Skirts on the 'www' and thought that this pattern would be perfect.

I made View 3 and its a super easy pattern to make up in less than a day!

I decided to line it as the denim appeared to be quite a loose weave and I hate it when your skirt 'seats' in the behind!
Thanks Tracy for the lining - it handles really well.

I have absolutely no idea where the denim came from:/

The 'innards'...

I did a mock flat fell seam in thread that is matchy-matchy with the lining.

The pattern called for an invisible zipper - which I LOVE doing, but chose not to in this case as they don't really work well with denim waistbands.

Love the skirt!

Will definitely be making more and I thoroughly recommend the pattern.


  1. LOVE it! And what a great idea to make it in denim....ok, I might need to get this pattern!

  2. Wow Jen, I love it as well.
    See you tomorrow

  3. Nice job Jenni! Love it with the red...and the black...a very versatile addition to your wardrobe. I bought some fabric to make a skirt while on holidays...hee hee...but don't hold your breath waiting for me to sew it :) Might have to look for that's lovely!

  4. Your Ginger is wonderful!! Denim is a perfect fabric for it and your construction is superb. It SO time I buy this pattern.
