What materials did you use? cotton blend of some sort with some serious texture & a bit of shine. it was cheap! and i dig the texture. invisible zipper, color of your choice with matching bias tape for the waist band.

What are you most proud of? i have yet to purchase an invisible zipper foot. i started this skirt on 12.24.11 around 5ish. came to inserting the zipper & remembered (!) that i don't have one. i decided to continue on using the reg zipper foot that came with my machine. it all worked out i will be doing this skirt again since i have a lot of the same fabric & opted out of doing a mockup originally AND i will remember to have purchased the proper invisible zipper foot.
