Ellis Skirt Bundle: True Black Cone Mills Denim Kit
Make a classic Ellis Skirt using high quality Cone Mills denim! This denim has a beautiful balance of stretchy comfort and rigidity, with no bagging or stretching out during the day. This denim is used in lots of premium jeans and skirts, so why not use the best for your Ellis?
We found something rare: true black high quality denim! This amazing overdyed "sulfur black" Cone Mills denim is true, inky, black just like your fave black denim skirt - and it washes fantastically too. As it's overdyed it will slightly fade over time, but I can attest it most definitely remains black! In real life, it's a little darker than the photo; black denim makes it hard to see details!
This kit contains all the denim and notions you'll need to make your skirt - just add the interfacing and lining of your choice.
You have the option of purchasing the kit with the paper pattern, with the PDF pattern (which will be delivered directly to your email inbox) or just the fabric & notions alone.

Machine wash cold, tumble dry or lay flat to dry. Be sure to prewash your denim; denim will bleed for the first few wears, so be careful around white sofas!. Washing with vinegar to help set the dye.
