Description

A very simple skirt I made as a test to see if I actually needed a pattern. Turns out I don’t. This is a high waisted skirt with a zipper in the front that is both functional and accentual. 4 pleats and a large folded hem on the bottom. Pictures thanks to alazycalm

Material Notes

100% Nylon. I found it on a scrap table with upholstery fabric and love the pattern. I was worried it’d be too stiff to work with but it ended up being completely fine. $1.99/yd and I used <1
