The other fabric my friend got for me in Uganda! She went with Invisible Children’s Schools for Schools program, and brought a few yards of fabric back with her.
The pleats on the back, I did in reverse so my butt wouldn’t look too funny in the skirt. :) I also took in the waist 5/8" from the size 40 pattern, and took the hem up a bit.
Cotton fabric, thread, 9-inch zipper, hook-and-eye, hemming tape.
Thanks to Elena for the mad rad fabric!
