This is a skirt based on the Helena Skirt Pattern (http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/helena-skirt-a-new-pattern-download) and was a birthday present for my girlfriend. It was my first sewing project since I was a little kid, so I was definitely rusty. I would definitely recommend making a test skirt first using muslin because the directions were pretty vague and it took some creative thinking to figure out what to do.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
