What materials did you use? Loose woven cotton/rayon fashion fabric; polyester underlining and lining.

What are you most proud of? I'm glad I took the time to do this. I basted the skirt and adjusted the fit -- this pattern has always fit me well, but now it's perfect. Also, adding both the underlining and the lining makes the skirt feel terrific, gives it a better drape, and hides the underwear lines I would otherwise have in such a clingy garment.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be afraid to use something fun even when it won't be seen! Only I see the floral lining but it makes me smile and gives me a lift -- kind of like wearing pretty underwear. I am thinking, though, about making a bias strip out of the remnants for future accent use.
