My second ever item of clothing, same as the first.
I decided to have another go at the same thing, but in an easier fabric. This is a cherry print lightweight cotton, which I got from Sew Over It.
Note, if you please, my excellent use of the "pretend to be inspecting an apple tree" style of modelling.
This is a much better skirt, and I wear it fairly regularly. I made it a size smaller so it fits a lot better, I got the zip in on the second try, and the hem is about four million times better (I mean, I'm sure there are things about it that would make a perfectionist weep with despair, but it's all flat and not too obviously wonky and stuff).
Plus it's even better at doing this:
I thank you.
