I used Butterick #5613 view A. I shortened the skirt 2.5," made a rolled edge hem with my serger, and added a lining.
Total Cost: $6.44
- Fabric: $3.37
- Lining: $2.07
- Zipper: $1
I bought the fabric at Sewfisticated in Framingham, MA. The fabric claimed to be cotton on the bolt, but it feels more like rayon challis, and the lining is satin.
I learned a valuable lesson whilst sewing this skirt; don't gather the lining to the same degree as the shell fabric. Attaching the skirt to the waistband was a disaster and I broke two serger needles. I eventually got it done, but it's not pretty:
|It doesn't help that I didn't have a black zipper on hand...|
The back of the waistband is no good, but look at how twirly this skirt is!
