This is my first attempt to make a real skirt and by real I mean one that has a zipper in it. I drafted the design myself but it was really simple and easy to make. Check out my blog for a tutorial to come soon diynamite.com

Lovely ! This skirt fits you perfectly and the fabric is great ! Congratulations for mastering the zipper thing (the most difficult to me ! I always leave the UFOs at this stage ! LOL).

Thanks! I was pretty excited that it fit me so well considering I don't have a dress form. Smiley

I am in admiration... I don't even try to make "real" stuff to fit me... clothes for the kids and lounge pants around the house that nobody else will see--your skirt is amazing though! I'd be all over town in that one!
