I had some white organic cotton fabric that I have wanted to use forever, but just recently worked up the courage to cut up.  So I dyed it and made up a skirtpattern which requiers neither skill nor zipper and I was surprisingly happy with the results. Here we go:

and a closeup of the reason for it being without zipper:

AND even if I add a few kilos round the waist I can still use it.

Now on to the requested tutorial:

I lined the skirt with the same fabric so I guess ou could say I made it double.

Cut out the pieces as shown below. I cut four of the first piece and then cut two of them up and added the 25 cm wide stripe. It's of course possible to just add 25 (or so) cm to the width right away.

There is no shaping involved, just straight lines. Although you might want to smoothen it up a bit by the waist (where the 10 cm straight part bends into the diagonal.)

Then just sew the shit together... and tie cute bows.

any questions or comments are most welcome. Since english is not my first language I'm sure there are grammatical and other errors.

Very cute!!  Great job with the pattern as well.

Where do you get your organic cotton?  I started searching websites the other day but didn't get good results.

I like it, very 'flirty' (is that a word? eh, it's my word.) looking.

That's so cute! I love the ties.
Would you be willing to make a tutorial on it? I'd love to make one for myself!

I love this. I need to make a pattern, or find one like this. I hate zippers.

In the morning I'd awake and couldn't remember...
What is love and what is hate, the calculations error.
