What materials did you use? peacock nylon with a black flocked border pattern on both selvage edges, invisible zipper.

What are you most proud of? How nicely the seams lined up so you can barely see the change in the pattern. This took a lot of "engineering" - measuring, lining up, remeasuring, pin basting to check, measuring again, then actually cutting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The pattern is easy to make - it is just rectangles. If you have to try creating your first pattern, this is an excellent one to begin with!

This skirt is so beautiful in real life and the patern looks like it would not be too difficult
