My first half-circle skirt from Simplicity 4236. Reviews said it was easy for beginners, so I wanted to try it. The pattern was very simple with few pieces and steps. I still had some trouble making it since it was my first skirt with a zipper. I like the look of circle skirts and will definitely make another one, but probably with an elastic waistband and a more flowy fabric.
cotton fabric, zipper, hook and eye, thread
