This was a test run of a vintage skirt, but I loved it so much I just kept on wearing it! After 1 year of use, I finally shortened the skirt to a more flattering length (The sparkly bits in the photos are the pins.).
You can tell it’s a test run because of the pleats I put in the back of the skirt, and the horrible zipper installation! The newer version, which I will be taking photos of soon, fits much better.
One of these days I’ll fix the zipper, too.
