On a Friday evening last year I decided I needed a new skirt for Saturday. I wasn’t up for lots of sewing and hadn’t quite mastered how to install a zip, therefore I thought to make a simple but effective casual skirt with an elastic waist band.
Taking only 15mins, I was extremely impressed with the result and have found a lot of use out of this skirt since.
