Skirt Pattern: New Look 6035
Fabric: Cotton print
This is a fairly straight forward sewing project.....except I didn't read the pattern right and went off on my own sewing tangent. Then I noticed the skirt had a band not a turn down facing. So I had to unpick my zip and start again.
I ended up chucking my zip out as it didn't slide easily.Who wants to unpick and fix the zip once the skirt is made? Not me! I found another red zip in my stash but it was far too long so I shortened it.
Mostly all my sewing went well, but it would have been better if I had just cut the fabric to size instead of adding inches to the side seams. Because the skirt became way too big and I had to fit the skirt back to a size 14...

you can't see the design of the skirt
|The Style D A-frame skirt does look very slimming on.|
I sewed the hem by hand...
