McCall's # 6361 Skirt Pattern

Skirts are so versatile! You can make them in so many ways for me personally, I have a petite frame so short, tailored, A-line skirts look best. Recently, I bought another Craftsy sewing kit and made the McCall #6361 skirt from Robert Kaufman's Railroad denim fabric. It has a zipper fly so this was a new skill to learn. I watched this video tutorial instead of actually following the pattern directions. This is the easiest way to install a zipper fly, especially for a skirt.
The first skirt was such a success, I made two more! This one is made from white denim fabric. I bought it from JoAnn's, here is a tip. I knew I needed a little more than one yard of fabric. So I found a bolt that had a yard and a little extra on it. JoAnn's will give you a 50% discount on the last part of the bolt, that does not make up a full yard. 
So my 1.25 yard = $16 for the yard + $2 for the quarter yard. Plus I used a coupon! 
Skirt for under $20!!
This is a size 12 skirt, View D. This pattern also has shorts, capris and pants. I am a little curious to see how they will look in a size 12. The skirt is easy and forgiving. I would love to have a pant go to pattern. 
Especially since a 2015 spring trend is flowery skinny pants. I would have to trim the sides to make them look more like this but that would be awesome!

Great skirt! I found your blog from Sew Mama Sew. Good luck I'd love to try this skirt. I have lots of denim perfect for it.
