Sashiko Embellished Skirt

I put the finishing touches on the sashiko stitched denim skirt last week with the addition of a few more circles and half circles. I kept most of the design to the front of the skirt with a few small details on the back and sides.

I love all of those straight stitched lines against the dark denim. I have not yet worn this because it still feels too cold for a short skirt even with tights.

This is the fourth sashiko / embroidery project I’ve completed over the past year. I’m sure I’ll find something else in my wardrobe in need of embellishment. I love working on these textile-based side projects. It’s also a thrill to get to wear my own work.
