I like skirts with eye-catching zippers!
I used my darkblue dress as template and made the pieces for skirt and lining. Then I cut the pieces and added the zipper. This was really challenging because first the zipper seemed to be too long and I had to rearrange it repeatedly but in the end I defeated the zipper ;-)
I took about 60 cm elastic cotton and a bit less for the lining and of course a big zipper
