I had this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107286.0 saved in my 'want-to-try-someday' folder for quite a while and I had this pretty wool plaid lying around that I wanted to use.
Also blogged about here: http://tidytipsy.wordpress.com/2010/01/04/high-waisted-plaid-skirt/
For a non-strechy fabric it definitely needs a zipper (I learned the hard way ). And for the zipper a zipper foot would probably have been handy and it would have come out nicer but I didn't have one and had to do without. I still like the original better but I might try it again some time with a different fabric (I also didn't have enough left of the plaid to gather it enough at the waist).
In the background you can see my 1929 treadle sewing machine which I sewed it on .
Thanks for looking!
