This light cotton makes a fresh skirt. Once again, I used a wide band and extended the five skirt panels from it. I drafted the left and right sides of the band too high so they come to points. I love the wide band and buttons but I wish that the zipper didn’t need to extend into the skirt but it did to fit.
Update: For those looking to make a similar skirt, the band on the Twinkle A-Plus A-Line is perfect. I made a skirt based on the waistband piece and it fits very well. The link is here: http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/a-plus-a-line-by-twinkle-by-wenlan
