I want to make this type of skirt for so long but always distracted with some other projects, but I am happy now that I finally made it.
I used 1.25 yards of cotton drill in deep purple color from my stash. The instructions is very easy to follow but I accidentally cut the waistband a little bit smaller than the original pattern. Instead of making with 2.5 cm waistband, I made 2 cm waistband.
