Denim - It's All in the Details!

As a child of the 60's, I have always been a huge fan of anything denim: jeans, skirts, dresses, cut-offs, and even hats.  The Sandbridge Skirt by Hey June Handmade brought back my love for denim, as soon as I saw the line drawing for the tester call.

This is a great skirt!  It comes in two lengths (mini and knee length), and it has all the bells and whistles denim clothing should have, starting with a fly front, a coin pocket, optional rivets, contrasting bias for the inner waistband and topstitching details on the seams and pockets.


The Sandbridge is designed for medium weight fabrics such as denim, corduroy, or other similar weight fabrics.  It can be made with a fabric with some stretch or with none, but if you choose non-stretchy, you are advised to go up a size.  The step by step instructions are easy to follow and there will be a sew along on the website,  Hey June Handmade, starting on Monday, July 24. Join in the sew along if you want support in making this fabulous skirt.

I was so happy to be chosen to test this pattern.  My next version will be in a great paisley corduroy.  I can't wait to get started on it.  This one is made in a dark wash denim with about 4% lycra, so only a bit of stretch.  It's very comfortable to wear, and holds it shape well.
