Well for £1 i have managed to squeeze out two half decent skirts out of the same fabric, not bad as i am on a budget. I reused my skirt sloper from making the pencil skirt.
The skirt went to plan, i did not put a zipper in it, as i found that with my pencil skirt i did not really need it because the fabric was slightly stretchy, so i just put a bit of elastic round the top for added security.
This material came from Oxfam for £1, it is a double layered knit polyester.
