I did, in fact, scoot Demin Skirt to the front of the line and finished it in a few hours. Unfortunately I didn't try it on (Will I never learn?), so the finished product is completely wearable, but not as fitted as I would like. Sure I can tighten up the tie, but then the skirt front covers up one of the pockets. And let's face it, the pockets are the star of the show here.
The look I was going for was kind of a 70s worn in denim kind a thing. I pictured tucked in shirts and platform sandals. I don't know if that's exactly what I ended up with . . . but I do have a plan and will report back at a later date. Hopefully before summer is over (assuming it ever gets here).
