The details. I cut the mini version in a size 8. I easily got the skirt out of the 1m I bought with all the pieces running in the same direction (phew). I was surprised by how delicate the Liberty cord was and decided to line in with a purple cotton sateen from spotlight. I've never lined a zipper fly skirt before and wasn't sure how to go about it so I made it up as I went along. In essence I made two versions of the skirt back and front but didn't include the pockets on the lining version.
I attached gold button I got in an op-shop bag-o-buttons-bargain. I regret not interfacing the waistband, in addition to the facing, to provide some extra structure. but otherwise I'm really happy with it.
Overall, I'm really happy with how the skirt turned out and I'm glad I made something that I will wear often and can be proud of, rather than spending more money on something mass produced. Sewing with the liberty fabric was a dream. I love the feel of the silky soft cord. I hope and pray I can justify further purchases of Liberty fabric some time in the near future.
