So I had two choices: Go on a diet, or sew myself a replacement. So here it is, a slightly bigger version of my favourite skirt. And as for the diet? I’ll start tomorrow.

Also I have a goal of always learn a new technique when I make a new garment. For this on it was the exposed zipper. It wasn’t hard at all!

    1. Thank you, Ivy! I drew the pattern from scratch, so I'm afraid I can't refer you to a pattern. But I will be sharing the pattern for this skirt pretty soon :-).
