My first attempt at a skirt! I altered the pattern to go from a size 36 waist to a size 34 hip (I just guessed since the smallest size on the pattern is 36). The waist and hip fit perfectly, but the lower sides flared out too much, so I re-pinned them for a closer fit before I sewed up the sides. The invisible zipper was installed with a regular zipper foot.
I’m really happy with it!
