I thought the new Grainline Moss Skirt looked pretty perfect, if a little short for me. I made it up in a size 6 with no fit alterations bar lengthening it by 15cm. I made it in a lovely black Italian denim from Tessuti.
I wore this to work on Friday - we have casual Fridays. I wore a cream and red striped Veronika Maine blazer over it.
This was my first time sewing a Grainline pattern and my first time sewing a fly like this. The pattern instructions are amazingly clear and easy to follow. There is also a tutorial on the Grainline blog.
I did two things differently. I faced the waistband with the same Liberty cotton lawn I used for the pockets as my denim was too thick to use as the facing.
I also faced the hem with the Liberty as when I tried on the skirt before hemming it was exactly the right length. I despaired for a while thinking it would be more mini than I wanted and then had the lightbulb moment of facing the hem.
I love this skirt. It is really comfy and a good length for running around after Little M. I also really like the fit. Slim but not tight. Will look good with a pair of Converse or a pair of sandals. My kinda skirt. I think I will make another one in the new year - maybe a red one?
