Striped Skirt

I made this skirt from the basic skirt pattern in Wendy Mullin's Sew U This book has wonderful straight forward directions. I added a zipper and trim at the bottom and I'm so happy with how it turned out. The fabric was on super sale, only $3 a yard so total this skirt probably cost $6 and it's prefect for summer!
I've also started going through my crafty stash and I'm planning on putting packages together later this week to mail out to interested parties. I'll post something more 'official' in a couple days.

Oh awesome. Please share photos when you're finished! I can't remember if your comfortable with zippers or not but just go for it, once you do it successfully it's a breeze!
