I’m so glad I finally decided to make this skirt! I kept looking at RTW versions of a denim button down skirt in the store but I kept thinking back to this pattern. I really liked the idea of white version. I knew it would go with so many things in my closet. I plan on making a blue denim one too sometime this summer.

The skirt was pretty easy to make! I didn’t run into any issues until I was doing the buttons and button holes. My machine likes to malfunction when I want to make buttonholes on thicker fabric. I ended up doing most of them manually on the machine. Then, I had trouble installing the denim buttons. I bought the ones made by Dritz at Joann’s and do not recommend them. The pins kept bending when I hammered them. I managed to get these buttons attached but I’m not convinced they are going to last. I plan on replacing them with another brand sometime soon.

Overall, I’m happy with this skirt and am excited to wear it a lot this summer!

    1. Blackbird fabrics recommended some ykk ones they have in their shop. Someone else recommended “citron jeans” on Etsy. I haven’t ordered anything yet but I’m hoping one of these work better!

  1. The most recent package of Dritz jean buttons I bought were the same–a total waste of money and time. Every single one bent went I tried to put them on the garment. It’s shame, because they used to be such a good and useful product. Your skirt looks great!
