Lovely skirt. The exposed zipper with its contrasting color is particularly pretty.

Wow, that is such a cute skirt! And nice to know that it can be done with only 1 yard of fabric. It works so well with the rest of your wardrobe.

I like the skirt pattern. The pleats and buttons do lift it out of the ordinary. Great job!
