So, I love this pattern. It takes all of my willpower not to make 68368 more skirts from it, because it is so comfy and flattering and EASY.  Grin But I figure I need to have skirt diversity, so I limited myself to three. Two are pictured because the other one's in the wash.

This skirt is made from a nice dark denim I got for something ridiculous like 2.50 a yard in a redtag sale. It is kind of stiff at the moment but I hope that will change once I wash it:


This is a gorgeous dupioni bridal silk I got for 5$ a yard in the same redtag sale:



In short, I highly recommend this pattern for its simplicity and reward!

Love the dupioni bridal silk (great deal!) it looks so luxurious.  Great job on both the skirts.
