These skirts come out beautifully.

They can be made in a variety of fabrics

Warmer fabrics for winter;  Wool Mix, Cord, Denim, Gaberdine. 

Not suitable for obvious diagonals, uneven plaids or jersey.

If your fabric has a large pattern that needs to be matched  you will need extra fabric. (Best avoided for beginners.)

New Look Pattern 6053.     Or you can choose a pattern from my Pinterest selection.
7″  zip.
Matching thread.
Fabric  (make sure you wash it first, if it is washable!)

Choosing the correct size for your skirt depends on your hip size.   

Be prepared, you will NOT be the same size as shop bought clothes!      

115cm      up to 46" hips you will need 1.5m
151cm      1m will be enough up to 46" hips

If you use cord or velvet, allow 0.5m extra.
