I am really happy with the skirt - happier than I look in this photo!
Here is the front closer up - you do get a fish-tail look from the front as the flounce starts from the front and the denim does hold it out, but I think the corduroy they suggest would do the same - at least it does in their picture.
Back of the skirt...
With the flounce and the pockets on an angle, I think it gives a nice curvy shape - I need all the help I can get!
The only changes I made were to leave off the welt pockets on the front and to use the Sandra Betzina fly tutorial and then I bodgied adding a fly shield. I need to perfect that and will try Mary Nanna's tutorial next time.
Dawn has also made this skirt and posted photos here. It is similar with the flounce, but Dawn has added weights to minimise the fishtail look.
I used a quilting cotton for the inside waistband. My top stitching went beautifully until this point but you can see some wonky stitching on the inside here.
Well, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and New Year! I hope to have time to sew (like real, bulk time) in the new year so I plan to post more successful (*!!??) sewing then!
