What materials did you use? 100% cotton

What are you most proud of? Since I didn't have to put much effort into the zipper I got crafty and added the bias strips to the waist band and all the contrast fabric. Great way to use up that extra 1/2 yard. I like it, but it might be border line cutesy for some people!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I have been sewing for a long time but never tried an invisible zipper. I have a Bernina and did have to buy their $20+ dollar presser foot. Thank you Diana for showing me the steps. I think for cotton skirts and easy breezy clothes invisible might be a great way to go.

It's just a plain old aline skirt pattern. I made the waist band wider and wacked off the bottom and used the different material. If you like the look there is a book called "Sew Serendipity" by Kay Whitt. It has a lot of different ideas like this and patterns.

OMG, you look as pretty as a peach! Perfect match for the blouse, and it's so joyful! Speaking of the blouse, was that made from a pattern, or was it RTW? It's adorable too!

Thank you for the nice compliments! The blouse pattern is about 30 years old but I am sure you could find something close.
