What materials did you use? I used cotton sateen and a 1970's cotton repro flower print for sash. The pattern I used is a vintage 1970's Vogue basic design no 2198.

What are you most proud of? The skirt is a lovely fit on but to add a bit of zing to it I made a sash of reproduction print cotton fabric.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Follow the pattern instructions and use interfacing in the skirt waist facing. It does not have a band but is darted at the waist for a comfortable fit.

Great retro skirt. The tie in contrasting fabric really makes it fabulous.
