Reading about the Grainline Moss skirt on various blogs lately, especially Beccasaurus' description of the non flappy front pockets, got me thinking. I love a pocket, but have never ventured to make more then a patch pocket. Time to be brave and make proper pockets in a skirt! So using a combination of these 2 patterns -
I drafted a pattern to make this denim skirt. Which has pretty much gone on high rotation ever since! So pleased with the pockets! I can carry my phone, keys, pen etc. - super handy for work, and especially for school pick up- I don't need to carry a bag, like I do with most of my other skirts!
I used the idea from the Moss to attach the internal pocket lining into the front seam so they don't flap about.
But I didn't put in a zip - I opted for the comfort factor of a "yoga waitband". And yes, I have tried it out and worn the skirt ALL DAY - like 8 in the morning until bed time! And it well and truly passes the comfy test. Skirt is made from stretch denim, which also contributes to the ultra wear-ability. So I have 2 more cut out ready to be made, and plans for more. I will see how I go getting some sewing time in today before I have to go to out this afternoon!
