Merchant and Mills Womenswear - The Clementine Skirt
Slim fitting jeans skirt with a back split and shaped waist band. This is a pattern that it is advised to make a toile of first, firstly to adjust the fit if needed but secondly to familiarise with the pattern instructions. We have not used a traditional run and fell jeans seam, we have chosen instead to topstitch the seam, which is easier to achieve on a domestic machine.
A heavy duty thread rather than a topstitch thread can give a more authentic look to the topstitching and is easier to use, and so you may find you get a better stitch using a matching ‘sew all’ thread in the bobbin.
Sizes: 6-18 (UK)
Recommended fabric: 8-12.5oz denim (up to 14oz with a heavy duty sewing machine)
