Minerva Blogging Network: Denim Delight! Lisette Market Skirt

Hi friends!
Its been a really busy month for me but anticipating that I decided on a lovely speedy project for my April make.
This is Simplicity 2211 also known as the Lisette Market skirt by pattern designer Liesl Gibson I always loved her designs and I'm sad to say this is one of her patterns which is now out of stock.
I have made version two before a couple of years ago, oddly around this time of year!
Unfortunately I used the same pattern pieces, forgetting I'd lost a bit of pudge since then. I would happily have this skirt a size or two smaller. It pools a little at the front but its too comfy and in rotation too often to change now but the next version I will.
In order to add some detailing I topstitched the seams and added the tab and two little rose gold coloured buttons from the stash.
 Ah Pixel Pug is getting used to these photos now! This is very typical of how i've been wearing this skirt. The upside of a plain denim skirt? It goes with everything! It has barely been off my body since I finished it. The denim is a lovely firm quality, hardwearing but not heavy and in a perfect shade of mid blue. A colour I can't seem to find jeans in on the high street at the moment. Perhaps I should think about making myself a pair with this denim...

 I love a versatile skirt! I grant you its not the most flattering without a waistband but I have some denim left over. It got a bit wrinkly after wearing it for the whole day but I think thats to be expected. Pixel has decided that its his turn in the limelight. He bought his grotty chicken toy over to play!
 He's determined to show you his messy bit of the kitchen. All his own work you understand!
In the end Pixel obviously won!
Fabric: Minerva
Notions One spool of thread Minerva and buttons from stash
Wearability: 8/10 If I cut a smaller size then it would be a ten!
