McCall's 7392 Button Front Denim Skirt

I wanted a simple white maxi skirt to wear for summer, so I picked up McCall's pattern 7392. I made the white maxi skirt and the red knee length skirt with this pattern.




I've had my eye on McCall's 7392 since it went on sale. This pattern has been waiting for me to make it. I really love the front button skirt. I would like to make one with mustard suede for fall.

I made this skirt with a white stretch denim. I cut a size 8 (I used view D), based on the finished measurement. It's a perfect fit for me. I was worried about my underwear showing through the skirt, so I added a thin cotton lining. I cut the hem off the bottom of skirt because it frayed and distressed the hem. I wanted to make a suspender with the leftover fabric, but there wasn't enough. Therefore, I made the removable neck tie with a sliding buckle. It's total length is about 1 1/8yd. 


This tie reminded me of a kitchen apron slightly. Haha.
I shortened the distance between the buttons, because the front opening of the skirt opened a little when I sit on a chair.
I don't want to show my tummy^ _^ ;

Here is the knee length version (I used view C). 

I made it with a non-stretch red denim. 
I sewed on some square buttons, they match the red denim. I didn't make a top buttonhole, so I sewed the hook instead. 

I thought the off shoulder tops might go well with the skirts. I made these tops from Japanese sewing books. I am happy with the both styles.

I love the pattern. However it has many parts, so it's difficult to adjust size after finished. If you make one, I recommend you that check the measurement before you sew the waist band to the skirt parts. It took a long time but it's worth a try! I will definitely make another one.

Fabric: White denim  2 1/8 yd. Red denim 1 1/2 yd. 
Total time spent: 8 hours

  4. You look so stylish in both of these outfits! I definitely think the off-the-shoulder tops were a great match. I'm so happy to see these skirts made up because I have the pattern but haven't had a chance to make them myself. I think now I have to make one in red denim like yours!

    1. Thank you, Shirley! I am glad that you have the pattern too. I really love it. Recently, front button skirts are in fashion in Japan. If you would like to make one, I recommend that you shorten the distance between the buttons. I am looking forward to your next project:)))
