For this denim week occasion, I’ve sewn myself two new denim skirts!  I’m excited to share them with you in full detail.  (The back side of these are the best part, if I do say so myself!)

We would be remiss if we didn’t mention that sewing with denim usually means a more complex project.  Which, for beginner sewists, can be quite intimidating.  And we admit that it took us quite a few years of sewing before we attempted these advanced type of projects.  So if you love denim, but are not ready to sew your own, we highly recommend these denim skirts from Style J.

  1. Great skirts!! I picked up a white stretch denim that is begging to be a sandbridge!

  2. I bought the Sandbridge pattern yesterday and the Santi skirt pattern from Designer Stitch, too. I’m hoping I can cut the gored panels for the Santi skirt out of the old jeans that I have been stockpiling for some reason…

    I can’t wait to read the details about your new maxi skirt, it looks perfect! I haven’t been happy with the fit on the last few Style J skirts I’ve bought, so I think it’s time to make my own.

    1. You can totally make your own…better!
