new skirt

 
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.
