We had a snow storm on Wednesday which left us without power for part of the day. I took advantage of that time by cutting out my next version of KS 3341, this time in a light blue denim from my stash.

Using a non-stretchy fabric for the skirt made the assembly much easier than my first version. I still had a bunch of the bright orange knit left so I used that for the shorts again. This time I lengthened the legs of the shorts by 2", which is more comfortable for me. I also lengthened the skirt by 2" as I did in my first version.

This time I kept the side slits at the bottom of the skirt.
I used a leftover bit of cotton for the pocket facing. I couldn't believe how well the blue in the print matched the denim.
The cotton was leftover from this top, New Look 6920 (unblogged and un-PatternReviewed), that I made in Sept 2011 in India.

Again, the pockets come out really well, and very RTW:
Again I had difficulty constructing the waistband as directed. I ended up making a casing with the waistband before inserting the elastic which worked much better than trying to attach the elastic first and then make a casing around it. Now that I have made this pattern twice, I will do the waistband my way from now on.
A lightweight, light color denim skirt is perfect for spring and I'm hoping spring arrives soon. I have had enough winter!
