Every girl needs a GOLDEN mini skirt…no?lol
The fabric pattern is not printed but woven in, so it really doesn’t look cheap… The texture sort of reminds me of that of Obi (waist tie for kimono) fabric.
I used Simplicity2451, one of my favorite patterns for my quick projects. It has four pleats in front, shaped waist yoke, and side pockets. The pattern does not require lining, but I might add it later because seam allowances of this particular fabric are a bit scratchy against my bare skin.
