I got all hyper about it yesterday and I made myself a fully lined pleated skirt out of gorgeous Joel Dewberry Quilting Cotton.
I didn't use a pattern and instead of a zip I put a small elastic panel in the back waistband.
I'm super relieved that it turned out because the cotton is super expensive in Australia and I would have been so upset if I'd wasted it.

Your skirt looks great.

Is the lining pleated like the fashion fabric, or is it straight?

Beautiful. I envy you being able to sew that up without a pattern.

I attached the lining fabric to the fashion fabric before I started sewing so it's like a single piece of fabric.

pinniped, I don't know how I do it either. I decided I wanted to do it, and then I sat down and wrote out how it would have to go together and then went for it. I made my daughter skirts without patterns all the time (you can see them on my blog) so it was just an adult version of them, which I think is much scarier. Hehe
