I LOVE it! I've been looking for a sailor skirt or dress pattern for a long time now.......might you be interested in posting one?
It's quite simple as far as a pattern goes. The skirt is a rectangle 3x wider than my waist, divided into 2 pieces. I cut the waistband piece to be 4.5" x 29.5" (my waist + 3.5" extra for the shirring). I then folded the waistband in half. I sewed the contrasting fabric trim onto the bottoms of the two skirt pieces, then sewed the two skirt pieces together and left an opening for the zipper. Then I gathered the skirt onto the waistband and stitched it down. I added in the shirring (which can be left out) and closed the waistband by stitching in the ditch. I inserted the invisble zipper. Lastly, I cut a long strip of fabric and folded it into thirds. I sewed this down onto the skirt and DONE!
I have a seam allowance of .5" for all pieces, with French seam finishes
