Here is Simplicity’s retro #4044 in a black-linen like fabric. It’s a simple pattern, even the notch wasn’t that hard to really do. I recommend that pattern to all levels. In the beginning I didn’t want to make the notch and then after sewing it all up I saw it was a little plain, almost waitress-y. I ripped the front seam and cut the notch out like the original pattern intended. It’s actually a really nice skirt that will go with some of the blouses I purchased for the spring.
Black linen-like fabric from joanns sale $8, invisible zipper from a yard sale $1. Project cost: $9
