What materials did you use? Cotton, challis, twill, printed gauze. I scoured the remnant and reduced price tables at Hancock and JoAnn Fabric & Crafts.

What are you most proud of? That I figured out that if I lowered the front waist when cutting out the skirt, I didn't have to change the hem so much or have it sag because my waist is not on the same plane in front as in back. I fixed it.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pick fabrics that you have shirts to match, and more than one per skirt. Goodwill's a great source. This is a simple, elastic waist pattern that relies on your fabric choice and personality for any style it may have. Look on this garment as a blank slate. Choose fabric to make it dressy or casual or anything in between.
