i've got something to show you

Skirt project

here it is. i'm not totally happy with the results- i drafted the pattern with too much space at the center front (the zipper ends are supposed to touch) and not enough angle down in the front, but all in all i'm pleased with the skirt as a garment and look forward to wearing it! it was pretty easy to sew, so i might try my hand at another one (after some pattern changes)

Great work! I'm so jealous of all who have talent and can sew! Are those the YSL pumps with the wooden heel you've got on? HOT!
