Don't get too excited . . . I did not make a pair of jeans. But I finally got around to making another Hollyburn Skirt!
Not too long ago I was whining to Beth that I can never find suitable solid blue fabric for a skirt. And you may have already guessed her obvious answer . . . denim – it was staring me right in the face.
I though about a gold top-stitching thread, and went so far as to mosey on over to the thread display, but I couldn’t bring myself to go with the contrast. I left that for the inside seam finishing!
I discovered a new-to-me stitch function with this project . . . the triple-stitch. A single thread looked rather anemic on the sturdy denim, but the thicker line of matching thread looks quite nice (even if you only notice it up close).
I even went so far as to top-stitch my waistband along the upper and lower edges, and the hem (although that was first hand-stitched in place – old habits die hard).
And look at me making matching separates. It may not be fancy, but I have a feeling this skirt is going to get a lot of wear.
