Simplicity 2656 »
InstructionsMy only change was to make the inner facings and all the pocket pieces in a contrasting lightweight cotton since the canvas was too thick. I also omitted the interfacing at the waistband but I did stay-stitch it.

What was your inspiration?
I fell in love with this fabric about 2 years ago when I saw it used in a project on BurdaStyle and went straight out to buy some. I knew I wanted it to be a skirt but the right pattern didnt show up for a while. So I left it to mature in the stash until I bought the Simplicity pattern just before Christmas as a download from SewingPatterns.com
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
