This is my third project, I am planning 52 over the next year in an effort to teach myself to sew. I had intended to make a knit skirt (burdastyle #131), but instead I customized the this pattern and upped my game and gave it a small waist band and a side zipper. I also finished the hem off with a ribbon. I put in the zipper in 4 times, but despite all the grief I love the skirt.
I choose a faux leather cut out fabric for the skirt. It’s bright pink and a lot of fun.
