The "Grass is Always Greener" Skirt

Here is yet another project I cut out in 2007...only between now and then, I lost all but two of the pattern pieces, as well as the pattern directions.  I was flying blind on this one, but I really really wanted to see if I could do it....


The final product has six gores and six panels and a waistband I took from Butterick 5285.  I flat lined the fabric with white cotton because it was extremely see through (!!) and it made all the difference.


I happened to have a 9 in green zipper on hand, which finished the project nicely.  I couldn't be happier!


Fabric close up - I love green!


Have you ever lost pattern pieces and pattern instructions and completed the project anyway?? Let me know in the comments!
