Brooklyn, New Yo...
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.
