The first Skirt :D

I finally decided to start sewing! My first project is this linen skirt for summer time (it´s summer in Chile).
I used a basic pattern taken from an old burdastyle magazine but it ended up being completely modified and this is the result.

Material Notes

I used a piece of linen bought at a fabric warehouse (very cheap!!! :D). Ah! and a piece of red cotton lining.
