I made this skirt last fall, but I never got a chance to wear it before it got too cold. I think it will be one of my strongest pieces this year. I love the fabric and the color. It was very simple to make. I measured my waist and hips. Then I sketched out those lines on the fabric and connected the dots. I cut a little wider for ease and seam allowance. I put in a side zipper. Because I had only a white zipper, I painted the zipper with acyllic paint. This was surprisingly successful. It ended up being a little stiff, but it has not lost its color with many zips. I don’t know how washing it will affect it, but I’ll let you know.
