A quickie skirt I made with some leftovers. It took me about one and half hours to finish the skirt (including some seam ripping after putting a dart in the side seam).
The pattern is Meringue from the Colette Sewing handbook, I omitted the scallops since I didn’t have enough fabric for them. I love the skirt, the style is perfect. The fabric is a cotton satin, which was a joy to work with and an equal joy to wear.
