Country Girl Jean Skirt



Yee-haw! This skirt needs a rodeo outing! I really like it. I have been wanting to make a yoke front skirt and finally got this pattern off Esty. The jean material was in my stash. I used my twin needle for the first time on a project. It was so easy and made some nice straight stitching for the yoke and the hem. I just had the boots and cowboy hat becasue we do live on a farm, but for real life, I have a ton of great blouses that will work with this super cute skirt.

Pattern: McCall's 5248, it think this is a 70's pattern

Make again: Yes, I think it might make a nice alternate style for tuck-in blouses.

Fabric:  Denim! Yes, I am wearing jean material. I will say this, I forgot what color of yellow thread jeans have on them, I had to check my son's pair because I don't really have or wear jeans.

Alterations: Yes, the waist needed to be taken in a lot and I did take out some fullness in the gathers.

Anybody wear country inspired clothing? See y'all soon!

  5. Oh great country girl look! The shaped yoke on your skirt is a great detail! I have this turquoise denim dress I was given and it's straight from the seventies and I'm saving this beauty for Stampede!

  7. This look is great and I love that red checked blouse. I used to wear this look back in the late 60-70's when we had horses and a small ranch in CA. I think here in Alaska I'm done with the Western look however.
