Stay the Fly and Anchor the Pockets
I’m working on copying this skirt for a client. She wants it in different colors, and it is no longer in production.
It has jeans-style pockets and a fly-front opening.
While it is a ready-to-wear skirt, it has a nice interior pocket stay detail that extends across the front and finishes the fly-front opening.
Since I need to figure out how to construct this detail to duplicate the skirt, I’ll take you with me on my journey of discovery.
A look at the skirt’s interior shows that the stay extends from the side seam to the center zipper. It also functions as the back of the pocket.
On the zipper’s underlap side, the stay also creates the zipper shield/underlap.
The pocket front (facing) is a separate piece, which is the black fabric in the photo.
