This is a great skirt! It is a little different style than what I'd originally wear, but feels good on and I like the way I 'feel' in it. Lunch with my friend was fun and I've been wearing it all day since. Noticed it wrinkles a little. I can deal with that.
Because I checked this book out at my public library, my pattern was free.
Fabric ran @$5.00 maybe.
Notions included a zipper: $1.50
So a custom fit pretty skirt cost @$6.50 and I feel like I've improved my skill level. This book includes so many great ideas for variations on its patterns, I'm looking forward to trying another soon. But first, I need to sew a couple of tops now.
