Here's a few pictures. as ever I have to wait for Ian to take a photo of me actually wearing it, perhaps this evening as I intend to wear it when we go out for Tapas.
I cut a size 40 but as it looked so small I allowed 1" side seams. As it happened I did need a little extra, but not quite the full amount. It's a tad long for my liking but looks good with high heeled boots.

|Back finished and top stitched - the stitching does all match, honestly! It's not|
easy to photograph that godet - it's bigger than you think....
|Front waistband and darts all top stitched|
If you are unsure about making it I say go for it! I'm a pear-shape so I didn't hold high hopes for the style on me, but it is increadibly flattering.
In total this skirt cost me £7.50. The fabric and pink thread had to be purchased, everything else came from the stash.
PS Purple coat isn't forgotten, I just can't get myself motivated with it.....
